Powers of Attorney

As the average lifespan increases, our needs and those of our parents and grandparents extend far later in life. Often times we live beyond our capacity to legally handle our own affairs.  There are a variety of causes that can unexpectedly take away our ability to manage our lives that do not involve the loss of life.  Whether it be old age, mental disease, illness, or traumatic injury, for many of us there will come a time where we must rely on our family and friends to handle our medical, personal and business decisions.  A statutory durable power of attorney and a medical power of attorney along with a HIPPA release can facilitate the transfer of essential decision-making power to a trusted friend or family member, without the need for court involvement.
