    If you believe your attorney committed malpractice and your case is dismissed, you should seek an attorney. You should consult with an attorney to determine whether your case can be reopened. If it has been dismissed you may run into some serious issues. Consult an attorney ASAP through Avvo. Best of luck. Ian A. Scharg Law Offices of Mark A.

    If the health care directive (health POA) does not say she has power to dispose of his property upon his death or manage his assets, then your stepmother has no power to do so. If she holds a durable power of attorney for asset management and it specifically says she can manage his finances and dispose of his property via will, then yes. I recommend you have an attorney review the powers of attorney.

    I suggest you use the find a lawyer tool on Avvo to try to find a medical malpractice attorney in your area. An attorney will need to review your records to determine if they would take your case, as it is very expensive to pursue medical malpractice claims. Best of luck.

    Simply put, if you or anyone else in the surrounding 'incident' was charged with or cited by some sort of governing authority (either civilly, criminally, or administratively) or with some other penalty, then you have to fill in the applicable information. But if if nobody was charged or cited, then a simple 'No' suffices. Best of luck.

    Seek an attorney ASAP. The statute of limitations is very short in California for medical malpractice. Best to seek legal advice immediately or your brother's legal rights will be barred forever.

    First of all, I am very sorry for the loss of your mom. Nobody should be put through abuse and neglect like that any time, especially by persons who are being paid to care for elders. The situation you described above sounds like elder abuse and neglect. You should most definitely contact an attorney here in the area as soon as possible. There is a very short statute of limitations for negligence against skilled nursing facilities, so you need to act sooner than later to preserve your and...

    You will need to look at the initial retainer agreement to see how the fees are figured (i.e. if they are before costs or after costs). In regard to the installment payments, it depends on what the terms of the settlement says. You will need to look at the documents to shed some light on your question. Has your case settled? Best of luck
