Powers of Attorney
A Power of Attorney is a document in which you select another to make health care and property decisions for you if you are unable to do so. This document is, in our opinion, of co-equal in importance to your will or your trust. The powers you grant can be extensive and are critical to the continuation of your personal matters without court interference.
What distinguishes our approach to the preparation of a Power of Attorney document is our commitment to you as an individual, and our role as your advisor, instead of simply the drafter of a “standard” document. We have the difficult conversations required to educate you about the potential issues you are facing or could face over time. We help you understand how the document works, the powers it grants, and the consequences if the Power of Attorney doesn’t function properly or is misused.
Our goal is to ensure that the Power of Attorney document allows those you trust to help you, in the way you want, when you need it most.
