A durable power of attorney is a document which allows you to nominate someone, an attorney-in-fact, to make decisions for you if you ever become legally incapacitated and are unable to make decisions for yourself. You may give your attorney in fact broad or narrow powers. Some include the ability to handle your finances, hire legal counsel for you, prepare your taxes, insurance, and property transactions. Other powers of attorney may be very limited in scope, such as making decisions on one financial account. If you do not already have a valid power of attorney in place, please contact us today to explore and discuss your options.
