These important directives provide peace of mind that should the unexpected occur, your family and loved ones have a clear understanding of your wishes and are protected.

  • Durable power of attorney — A typical power of attorney is only in effect as long as the person signing the document is capable of understanding it. A durable power of attorney allows the directive to remain in effect after the grantor dies or becomes incapacitated.
  • Health care power of attorney — This document grants a selected individual the power to make critical medical decisions on behalf of the grantor should he or she become incapable of making those decisions.
  • Financial power of attorney — This document grants the named individual the power to make all financial decisions and manage the grantor's estate should he or she become incapacitated or incapable of such decisions.

We will carefully evaluate your situation, your estate and your personal circumstances to help you determine which types of POAs you need to comprehensively cover your interests. We provide perspective on any potential issues that may arise in the future and help you to fully protect yourself and your family.

Making the right decisions now is critical to ensuring that the future is free of costly and painful mistakes or actions that would run counter to your wishes. We are committed to helping you create the plan and options that best meet your needs and that of your family.
