No Action against Lawyer for Acts of Agent

An action for tortious interference with a right of inheritance cannot be brought against a lawyer for inter vivos transfers when the lawyer (a) prepared a power of attorney naming an agent who later abused the powers granted to the agent and (b) erroneously advised the agent as to the propriety of inter vivos transfers that reduced the estate of which the plaintiff was a beneficiary. Fiedler v. Spencer, 2020 PA Super 83 (4/2/2020).
