In June of 2015, I was contacted by Adult Protective Services of El Paso County to investigate a case involving a man who was living alone in his residence with no electricity or running water. This man is 59 years old and was extremely depressed by the loss of his wife and father. He stopped paying all of his bills, stopped eating and bathing and cut off all communication to the outside world. I was asked to became his Power of Attorney. As such, I marshaled all assets, found an assisted living facility that could help him get back on his feet and began investigation into the case. As the investigation progressed, I found that the gentleman had a very large estate and was also inheriting a large amount of funds from his deceased father.
I started a probate estate for his father and began the process of marshalling his assets as well.
I am sure that this man would be willing to speak on my behalf, if asked, as he has capacity to do so.
