Powers of Attorney

An agent under a power of attorney can act without any court authority. As a result these agents frequently act without consulting with an attorney. Too often the agent first consults with an attorney years after they have begun to act or when someone first complains about their actions.

Ikard Ratliff P.C. frequently advises agents who are operating under a power of attorney on their duties and privileges. IR tries to assist the agent in acting within its granted authority, maintaining good books and records, and providing proper accountings. With the assistance of Ikard Ratliff P.C., clients can stay within the legal boundaries of their authority and at the same time carry out the responsibility they were given by the principal who entrusted them with the power.
