The Benefit of Having a Power of Attorney

We are frequently asked about powers of attorney and what the benefit of having one might be. Financial and health care powers of attorney are critical estate planning documents. If you are ever injured or incapacitated and unable to make decisions for yourself, having in place both a financial and healthcare power of attorney can be extremely beneficial. The person you have nominated to serve as your agent will have the ability to make critical decisions on your behalf while you are incapacitated, and third-parties such as hospitals and banks can rely on your agent’s statements and actions the same as if such statements or actions were made by you (the principal). If you are interested in protecting yourself in the event of future incapacity, contact us today for a free consultation. We can draft financial and healthcare powers of attorney for you for a low flat rate.
