When planning for your future, it is vital to consider who to transfer your property to after death and how to protect your assets even past your lifetime. A Power of Attorney grants your agent the legal authority that is sometimes necessary to assist you in conducting your banking or financial planning. Even when capable of making your own decisions about your finances and property, it is a good idea to have a Power of Attorney appointed in the event where you are suddenly unable to make these decisions. We can help determine whether a Power of Attorney is right for you.
An Advanced Directive lets you decide whether you want certain medical treatment, such as a breathing machine or a feeding tube. They are important for the elderly or persons with serious long-term illnesses; although an Advanced Directive is essential for anyone to have in place in case an accident or unforeseen event happens. We can help you determine whether an Advanced Directive is right for you and help you plan for your long-term medical care.
