Durable Power of Attorney

Designation of Health Care Surrogate, Living Will, Designation of Pre-Need Guardian

An estate plan is incomplete without signing or updating your advance directives. 

Durable Power of Attorney - A powerful financial tool, a durable power of attorney names an agent to manage the principal's financial affairs in a variety of circumstances including travel, military service, or incapacity. Signing a durable power of attorney before incapacity is the simplest way to avoid the costs and court proceedings of a guardianship. However, durable powers of attorney are sometimes misused. It is important to work with an experienced estate planning attorney to discuss and tailor this powerful financial document to your needs.
