Power of Attorney - Planning Ahead for Your Family
Nobody wants to think about handing over the reins if they’re incapacitated, but it’s an important necessity that can save your family tremendous stress and heartache.
Contingency planning through the establishment of a power of attorney agent provides peace of mind that certain financial and/or medical decisions will be handled as you see fit should you become unable make them yourself. This person acting on your behalf will, for all intents and purposes, be viewed as you for these particular decisions and can act when you are not able or not willing to. Their decisions are considered final and legally binding.

There are many reasons a person may wish to assign someone power of attorney, including but not limited to:
