Durable Power of Attorney
A durable power of attorney is a document that legally authorizes another person or persons to do things on behalf of the person who signed the durable power of attorney. This arrangement allows you to appoint someone you trust to handle legal, and financial responsibilities in the event that you become incapacitated.
Limited Power of Attorney
These types of power of attorney forms are limited to what is defined in the document. It is an important legal document that allows the person you name in the document (your agent, or "attorney-in-fact") to perform a particular transaction. The limited power of attorney restricts the authority of the agent to a specific situation, limited time period, or type of legal action.
Wills & Trusts
A Last Will and Testament, or will, is a vital part of protecting and preserving the things you have attained in your life. Wills are essential to ensure your last wishes and hopes are honored and to protect those you care for most in this world after you are no longer able. Wills establish exactly how you would like to have your personal assets (both monetary and actual property) divided.
Wills also help to lay out your plan for the custody and supervision of minor children in the event of one or both parents' premature death. A will can also ensure the immediate availability of assets to continue paying outstanding bills and debt that otherwise may not be paid without a timely delay.
Powerful Peace of Mind
Having a current, well drafted, and effective Last Will and Testament in place can create extreme peace of mind and ensure all of your hopes and desires for your loved ones will be realized. Our experience and knowledge allows us to advise you on the best course of action to take regarding your Last Will and Testament, regardless of the simplicity or complexity associated with an estate.
