A power of attorney (POA) is a document that provides written authorization to another individual to act on your behalf with respect to business and financial affairs if you are unable to do so. A power of attorney can even be drafted so that your power of attorney can act after your incapacity or mental incompetence.

If you are in need of one or more power of attorney documents, we are equipped to assist you. There are several different types of powers of attorney, and our experienced team can help you determine which documents are best for your requirements.
- Special or Limited – Special or Limited powers of attorney are used in circumstances in which you need to designate someone to act on your behalf for a specific transaction.
- Durable – A durable power of attorney can be used to designate an agent to act on your behalf for all types of your personal and business transactions. A durable power of attorney allows your agent to act on your behalf even if you become incapacitated or mentally incompetent.
- Springing – Springing powers of attorney become effective at a future time, typically for a triggering event such as incapacitation or out-of-country travel. The springing power of attorney can grant an agent as much or as little control over your affairs as you wish.
- Health Care– A Health Care Power of Attorney is a document in which you designate someone to be your representative, or agent, in the event you are unable to make or communicate decisions about your health care. Your medical providers will communicate with your health care power of attorney to provide the best possible care. By executing a health care power of attorney, you know that the person you trust will be making those difficult health care decisions.
