Powers of Attorney

From general to specific and from broad to limited, there are different types of powers of attorney.  How much authority do you want to give your agent to act on your behalf?  When do you want it to become effective?  Immediately, or only upon you becoming incompetent or incapacitated?  Let us guide you through the process of selecting the right one for your needs.  

General Durable Power of Attorney

A general durable power of attorney is a power of attorney that gives broad authority to your agent to act on your behalf.  Typically, it gives your agent the authority to do anything that you are legally able to do.  They remain in effect ​if you become incompetent or incapacitated, but usually do not become effective until then.

Living Will / Medical Directive

A medical directive (sometimes called a "living will") is not really a power of attorney at all, but a set of instructions you leave concerning your health care wishes, should you become unable to communicate your desires.  In a medical directive, you state your instructions on what medical care and procedures you want given to you, or withheld from you.
