A Power of Attorney is a legal, written authorization that designates someone to share with you the power to make decisions for your finances and health care. Most Powers of Attorney allow your designee to serve if you are unable to handle your own affairs.

A Power of Attorney helps you avoid a Court-appointed guardianship. It enables you, and not the court, to choose who will have the power over your finances and health.

A person appointed as your Power of Attorney will have unsupervised authority. We can help make your Power of Attorney more secure.

Health Care Powers of Attorney and Living Wills are known as Advance Directives. They allow you to designate someone to make a health-care decision for you if you are unable to do so. They also allow you to set limits on medical care and life-prolonging interventions if you meet the legal definition of being permanently nonresponsive and  terminally ill. Contact us.
