Armando’s* niece sought out SLS for assistance with her uncle. Armando has speaking and reading impairments that led to him setting up a power of attorney years ago to help him deal with his finances. Sadly, in the years since, Armando has been severely neglected and taken advantage of by that POA. Fortunately, Adult Protective Services was notified, and assisted Armando with obtaining a temporary restraining order against the current POA. A police report was filed, and Armando turned to SLS for assistance with the necessary POA revocation and a new POA naming his niece. SLS helped Armando prepare for his permanent restraining order hearing, drafted his new POA documents, and ensured it was notarized and finalized. Armando will now have peace of mind with his new power of attorney and the confidence that his most essential needs are being met with trusted care.
