Powers Of Attorney
Guiding You Through The Life Planning Process
Many think of estate planning as concerned solely with the distribution of property following death. In fact, there are documents that can be used to address sudden illnesses or severe injuries that render people incapacitated and unable to make important financial and legal decisions.
At Family Law Group, we serve as legal guides to help our clients anticipate and proactively address the unexpected as well as the inevitable. Our attorneys work with clients from all different walks of life, each of whom has unique concerns and life planning goals. Working with our experienced legal team, our clients and their families are better prepared to handle any of life’s unexpected events.

Like trusts, powers of attorney are versatile documents that can be used to address a wide range of important financial and legal decisions that an individual must make. We tailor powers of attorney to reflect our clients’ unique circumstances, using them to delegate authority for the management of:
- Real estate
- Government benefits
- Insurance policies
- Personal and family maintenance
Another important type of powers of attorney we advise our clients to consider is health care powers of attorney. These name an agent to make important medical decisions on our clients’ behalf if and when they can no longer do so themselves. Like powers of attorney for property, these give our clients and their families greater peace of mind.
Health care powers of attorney become very important when someone is unable to communicate his or her wishes about medical treatments. Hospitals will often refuse to discuss a patient’s condition with certain individuals unless they can produce these documents.
