What You Need And Why It Is Important
Our attorneys sit down and give each client the one-on-one attention they deserve. We know that not one solution will work for everyone, which is why it is important to understand the individual. Throughout this process, you will have to appoint a person to execute the terms of your power of attorney, known as an attorney-in-fact. This person will be responsible for speaking on your behalf if you are unable to do so yourself. A health care proxy plays a similar role, and they are allowed to make decisions regarding your medical care. In the living will we create, you will have to name the people you wish to fulfill these roles.
Wills and trusts are additional useful tools to manage your assets. They are unique to you and specify what you want to see happen after you pass away. This often makes things easier on your loved ones, as your wishes are clear and concise. The right attorney can listen to your concerns and create a plan that is specific to you. Our goal is to advocate for you and what you find most important. It is important to know that you can always change your mind. You just need a lawyer to make it official.
