Seahurst, WA asked in Criminal Law, Domestic Violence, Elder Law and Wrongful Death for Oregon

Q: A conclusion has been made in my mothers investigation. She needs an attorney to represent her.

When we spoke to my mother she was very clear, not confused or disoriented.

She clearly communicated to the nurse that “I do not want to be here” “did not agree to what is happening or going on around here” “this was not my idea” “ i did everything I was asked to do, but I do not agree to this” “If I was going to die, and I am not dying!” “I would want to die at home” “I what to leave here now” I was clear I was coming to get my mom and called more than once.

The nurse said she would see me when I got there.

The nurse did not that they were assisting in her death.

Mom and I had planned a trip to Arizona. She got her Covid shot and new lenses for her glasses.

We were waiting for my doctor to say I could drive after my accident. Mom was in good health for 92.

In the past we have been told my mom could go to the hospital and be under observation until I got there if she were having difficulty.

My family planned her death, knew I would not support murdering her. Did not tell me.

A: I'm sorry to hear all that you and your mother have gone through. I recommend you hire a probate litigator to assist either you or your mother. This does not appear to be a wrongful death case.
