If you became unable to make important decisions about your finances, business, and legal matters, would you trust the court to appoint someone to make the decisions for you?
The Durable Power of Attorney (DPOA) allows you to appoint someone to handle these important matters in the case that you are incapable of doing so. This person is then called your “agent” or your “attorney-in-fact.”
Giving someone complete control of your financial decisions is a major decision. At The Siegel Law Group, P.A., we can help you determine if and when this is right for you.
Power of Attorney for Health Care, or Medical Power of Attorney, allows you to name someone you trust to oversee your care and make medical decisions for you if you become unable.

Durable Power of Attorney is an important part of the Estate Planning process, but it is only one piece. Though it assigns someone to take care of your financial, business, and legal affairs if at any time you become incapacitated, it does not apply after your death. Make sure your estate is taken care of no matter what happens.
