Was your loved one abused or neglected in a nursing home?

When you place a loved one in a nursing home, it is with the expectation that he or she will receive treatment and will be treated with respect, dignity and concern. When a Maryland nursing home or extended care facility fails in its duty to provide a certain standard of care, innocent and vulnerable adults may suffer.

Maryland parents may wish to address guardianship concerns

The main priority for many parents is to ensure that their children are taken care of. Unfortunately, there are instances in which biological parents may no longer be able to care for their children. Sudden deaths often account for such situations, but rather than leaving it up to the court to decide guardianship, Maryland parents may wish to name their desired guardians. 

Probate dispute: Sam Cooke's granddaughter facing legal issues

Being part of a legal dispute can be a complicated endeavor. Therefore, individuals who are facing probate litigation or other similar proceedings may wish to ensure that they understand their cases and what they may have to confront as they move forward. If interested, Maryland residents may wish to look into gaining professional legal assistance with such matters. 

Power of attorney agent may have say in Maryland funeral plans

Making funeral arrangements for a recently deceased loved one can be a difficult task for any Maryland residents. The situation may become even more complicated if the decedent did not make his or her wishes known. In some cases, conflicts may arise when it comes to who will make the funeral decisions, and surviving family members may have questions. However, if a power of attorney agent was appointed, he or she may have final say.

Estate plan can help to ensure family's financial security

People naturally prefer not to talk about death, which is why estate planning is not high on people's list of priorities. However, an estate plan is essential for ensuring one's family's financial security in the future. A few tips may help people in Maryland to complete well-thought-out estate planning.

What can an estate plan do for you?

At some point in your life, you have likely lost a loved one and felt the grief that comes along with death. You may have even witnessed other family members struggling to make funeral arrangements or ensuring that they handle property division in a way the deceased would want. These difficulties can affect anyone who suffers such a loss, and if you would like to help your family avoid making uncertain decisions, you may want to create an estate plan to address a variety of end-of-life topics.
