Power Of Attorney

The Illinois Administrator has filed disciplinary charges against an attorney alleging that he had notarized the signature of a client on a document granting power of attorney to her spouse that had not been signed in the attorney's presence. It is further alleged that the spouse used the POA to secure mortgages against jointly owned property and that the wife learned of the mortgages for the first time during marriage dissolution proceedings.
