Help With Powers Of Attorney Documents

Are you covered in case you become unable to make decisions for yourself because of incapacity or sudden disability? Have you designated someone to make decisions for your children if both parents are disabled or unavailable?

Lack of formalized powers of attorney for finances, children and health care could lead to difficult decisions for your loved ones, costly and invasive guardianship proceedings or outcomes you never intended.

Careful Drafting Of Estate Planning Instruments

The power of attorney you sign while competent should be granted to someone you know and trust to act in your best interests. The estate planning attorneys at Gellner Law Group can help you decide whom to choose and can draft the powers to enable that person to make decisions in line with your wishes.

Health Care Power Of Attorney

A power of attorney for health care covers circumstances in which you are unable to make medical decisions for yourself. Our law firm drafts health care powers of attorney to cover foreseeable decisions your designee might have to make: life support (see living wills), surgery, choice of facilities and medical providers, and more.

It is critical that your power of attorney include a HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) release of medical records so that doctors may release information necessary to activate your power of attorney and your family can take informed action.
