Power of Attorney and Advance Medical Directive

Power of Attorney and Advance Medical Directives are two types of documents that can be included in your customized Estate Plan to help protect your future. Both of these documents are important because they can help protect you while you are still alive in case an unexpected incident happens that affects your ability to make important decisions. If you do not have these documents and something happens, the court would have to appoint a Guardian or Conservator who could then make those decisions.

  • A Power of Attorney allows you to name a person who could oversee your financial and health decisions in the event that you become incapacitated or otherwise unable to make those decisions. 

  • An Advance Medical Directive also known as Health Directives, specify the type of medical care or decisions you want to be made in the event that you are unable to make or communicate those decisions.
