Powers of Attorney

We recommend Health Care Powers of Attorney, General Powers of Attorney, and Declarations (living wills) to our clients who don’t already have them.

A health care power of attorney enables the individual you designate as your attorney-in-fact to make health care decisions for you when you are incapable of making or communicating those decisions yourself.

A general power of attorney permits the person you designate as your attorney-in-fact to do almost everything you can do, depending on its terms.

A declaration (living will) is prepared when you are physically and mentally well.  It expresses your desire and intent that should you become terminally ill in the future, you want two physicians to “turn off” life-sustaining equipment.
