Exclamation Lawyer/ client contract terms

Hi everyone,

I am about to hire a lawyer in Istanbul and give POA to him to carry an inheritance case on my behalf ( I am not in the country). But I want to know what to keep in mind and be aware of when signing the agreement.
One thing I am worried about is if I need to terminate his service for some reason he asked I pay him the full amount we agreed on. This to me doesnít sound right, the expenses to be paid should be up until the time we stop the work.

Any advice regarding dealing with a lawyer would be appreciated.

Thanks

To sign a POA with a lawyer, it will need to be Notarised & a translator required. It may well pay you to find your own "independent Notarised translator". Most translators tend to know plenty about the laws of the land when it comes to POAs.
Just to add, many people fall foul by not realising the strength in Turkey of a POA. Its exactly what it says on the tin, their words are your words in the eyes of the law. You should know everything that goes into a POA via your translator...Ö...an odd line that you never knew about can cost a lot of money. You should have the Turkish POA mirrored in English & both signed by the translator.

Re: Lawyer/ client contract terms

Also make sure you put limitations in it ie
Time limitation, dont leave the dates open ended.
Cost limitations unless you are consulted to go above them.
Be very specific as to what he can and cannot do.
Be very careful as to what he can do with the title deeds.
Dont allow any debts to be put against the property.
I would not agree to paying full whack if you cut it short.

As 35chips has suggested it is a powerful document and you need to tread very carefully.

Thank you so much for the reply,
I had the POA done at Turkish Consulate in Canada. It is a very long document and a Turkish translator helped me understand whatís written.
With the power I gave heíll have power to transfer the deeds to my underage son.

You mean time limitation for POA or lawyer contract agreement?
I haven’t put an end date for POA, I was told will be valid until the lawyer finishes the work.

I would question that, POAs are pretty much open ended till cancelled by the giver & not the taker. I will stand corrected on that though.

That’s correct, it needs to get cancelled by me.

As said, IMO the translator is so important when it comes to POAs. Are you in possession of both copies (Turkish/English)?

No just the Turkish version. The translator verbally translated the document for me.
I can get it translated to English if I need to.

I would & itís worth other people taking note. What youíre verbally told whatís in a document doesnít necessarily mean thatís whatís in it. Itís a case of, ďyou signed itĒ.
I might come over a bit harsh but most of us have seen it all in Turkey, people in other peopleís pockets, hence my suggestion of a translator signing both copies. He/she puts their job/profession on the line then.
