Jamie stopped the mortgage company from selling my house in a foreclosure sale. The mortgage company was a predator lender and Jamie stopped them in their tracks! My wife and I are very grateful to Jamie and Dave.

Attorney Lathrop Will Help You Name a Guardian
Financial abuse is a serious matter that disproportionately affects the elderly and the disabled, often after control of their finances gets handed over to a seemingly trusted relative. Perhaps your parent has recently appointed a sibling as a power of attorney, and now are no longer receiving bank statements or aware of their account activity. If you've detected any red flags of this nature, and live in the Brooklyn, New York area, the first call you should make is to Jaime Lathrop, an elder law attorney with experience in dealing with elder abuse and guardianship.
There are two major types of guardianships under New York Law: SCPA Article 17-A Guardianships and Article 81 of Mental Hygiene Law Guardianships, the first being for parents of developmentally or intellectually disabled children who are about to turn 18, and the latter being primarily for trauma victims or the elderly. In both types, the appointed guardian has the legal responsibility to act in the best interest of the ward, and can only maneuver property or finances when absolutely necessary. When the time comes, Attorney Lathrop is here to answer your guardianship questions and represent you through the petition process. Call today to get started and set up a free consultation.
