Cleveland, OH asked in Civil Litigation, Elder Law, Legal Malpractice and Medical Malpractice for Ohio

Q: Mom is 66 I have POA,she sold LLC, she was president, now they are trying for her personal assets,she has none,on ssi?

Original buyer never paid full amount for business, we obtained a judgment, our attorney did not act on the remainder due( we will be sueing him- that's another story) they appealed, now they are claiming she hid business assets- untrue, she lost her home, had major medical problems and judgements against her she can't pay..they are requesting a debtors exam- I do not believe this is legal, also her checking is always over drawn.. The LLC was sold 5 years ago, what if she doesn't go to court? She is basically bed ridden from cancer and this is causing added stress..there is so much more I can tell you... It is so sad..she also needs another surgery from medical malpractice for a mesh implant.. She is a miracle.

We love her..

A: I think I answered this already. Did the tavern have insurance? That should cover the claim, get her an attorney. If the claimant settled, see the release. Otherwise, get a consult from a bankruptcy attorney. That would put the other proceedings on hold.
