Powers of Attorney

Nobody likes to envision a time where you may be unable to speak for yourself.  Should that situation occur in your life you will need a power of attorney to speak for you.  A power of attorney document tells the world who you have chosen to make your legal or financial decisions if you are unable to make these types of decisions for yourself.

The type of power of attorney document you need varies depending on your unique needs, but also is likely to change with time.  This is why it is important to have a qualified, dependable estate attorney to assist you with these needs.

We can assist with:

  • General Power of Attorney: a document which allows your designated person to make decisions on your behalf if you are unable. These decisions may involve:
    • Accessing safety deposit boxes or bank accounts
    • Managing property
    • Filing tax returns
    • Acquiring life insurance or health insurance
    • Managing stocks
    • Operating businesses
    • Transferring assets
  • Durable Power of Attorney: this document will allow decisions that you make now to remain in effect, even if you should become incapacitated.
  • Special Power of Attorney: this document authorizes your agent or designated person to make decisions only in very specific or limited situations.
  • Health Care Power of Attorney: this document designates which person you want to make health care and medical choices for you should you become unable to do so.
  • Revocation of Power of Attorney: this document gives you the ability to cancel a former power of attorney document that you created.
