The importance of choosing your Attorneys carefully

A recent BBC article has highlighted a case held at Canterbury Crown Court where an Attorney financially abused her friend. The Attorney was given a two-year jail sentence suspended for 18 months after being found guilty of fraud by abuse of position.

Marie O'Malley, Senior Solicitor at Moore & Tibbits in Warwick states "this case highlights the importance of choosing your Attorney carefully.  Your Attorney should be a responsible person you know and trust.   Think about who you can trust to make decisions for you, whether the person is reliable and has the skills needed to carry out the role.  Remember, when acting under the Property and Finance Lasting Power of Attorney, the Attorney can access your property and money".

If you have any concerns regarding an Attorney, you can report your concerns to the Office of the Public Guardian.
