Client of the Week 2/9/07

Client's Age: 84
County: Monongalia

Client called because her daughter keeps threatening to have her declared incompetent, and client is very worried that daughter is greedy and wants her inheritance now. I explained that no one can declare her incompetent without a court proceeding where she would get appointed a lawyer to represent her, and have opportunity to testify and present evidence. I explained both the guardianship/conservatorship and mental hygiene processes to client and explained her legal rights to make her own decisions unless a judge rules she can't.
