As the end of life issues approach, it is common to avoid dealing with problems until they are upon you or your client.
Even if the these issues have been discussed with loved ones, understanding powers of attorney, guardianship,
and other legal documents can be confusing. Honorable Kathy Gomes, Judge of the Probate Court of Shelby
