Powers of Attorney
Power of Attorney for Property
A continuing power of attorney for property is a legal document that authorizes someone you choose to have control and decision making ability over your assets and property. This can be broad and include bank accounts, investments, real property, chattel and other personal belongings.
A continuing power of attorney for property can be specifically drafted with your intentions in mind. It may be drafted to grant powers immediately or in the event of incapacitation of the grantor, or a specific event happening.
It can also be tailored to exclude specific control over certain assets or any property you wish not to grant power over.
A continuing power of attorney can be revoked by the grantor at anytime.
We can assist clients in the drafting and preparation of a continuing power of attorney and consultation and advice on any related issues.

Power of Attorney for Personal Care
A power of attorney for personal care is a legal document granting decision making power to someone over your health and welfare concerns. It can by granted to anyone you choose to make decisions over your health and welfare. This can include decisions relating to care once you are unconscious or physically or mentally unable to communicate or understand your surroundings.
A power of attorney for personal care is a very serious and important document, as the person granted this power is in control of someone’s life and well-being.
The document only gains power in the event of mental incapacitation of the grantor in order to provide direction to medical professionals to conduct appropriate treatment. Therefore as long as the grantor is still well and mentally sound, and capable of making decisions on their own the power of attorney for personal care does not yet take effect even if it is granted and executed.
As with the continuing power of attorney over property, this power of attorney can be revoked at anytime provided the grantor is in good mental capacity and awareness.
