Beware! POAs, Trusts and Liability
It’s common for people to serve as an agent under a power of attorney, trustee of a trust, or any of a number of other fiduciary roles. Unfortunately, acting under this kind of authority is fraught with civil and even potential criminal liability. Particularly for those who choose to not retain legal counsel at the start, the consequences of exceeding their authority or engaging in conflicts of interest create legal quagmires that may involve court proceedings and even protracted litigation.
In this presentation, Domenick Calabrese, Judge of the Region 22 Probate District and Administrative Judge of the Waterbury Regional Children’s Court will review the role of agents under powers of attorney, trustees, administrators, guardians, executors and conservators. The presentation will include things that should be avoided by fiduciaries, why legal counsel is necessary, and how to choose an attorney.
