What is a Durable Power of Attorney?

A general durable power of attorney is a legal document that names someone as the attorney in fact, who is responsible for managing your financial affairs. It doesn’t take your individual power away to act while you are able to make your own decision. Our experienced legal team can help protect your financial interests by preparing this legal document for you.

This durable power of attorney will help you to avoid a court-appointed guardian if you become incapacitated as well as handle all of your financial matters such as mortgages and other necessary payments. We also can administer yearly tax filings and maintain your bank accounts. If you’re unable to fulfill your debts, we can sell your assets too. We help provide you the authority that you need to implement necessary Medicaid asset preservation strategies that protect you and your assets when you need protection the most. This is an essential estate planning document for nearly anyone. If you have questions about power of attorney documents, contact our experienced legal team today.
