power-of-attorney-sample-contract-imageThere are many reasons why someone would contact an attorney about the drafting of a power of attorney document for them or for a loved one. Whether it involves a durable (or financial) power of attorney, or a health care power of attorney, Law Office of James. J. Collum, LLC can assist you with determining which best fits your needs currently as well as what may assist you or your family in the immediate future.

A healthcare power of attorney is a legal document that authorizes another person to make healthcare decisions for you if you cannot make such decisions for yourself. Properly choosing the correct individual to serve as your healthcare power of attorney is an important decision that should be discussed with an attorney.

A durable (financial) power of attorney is a written document through which a competent adult appoints another competent adult to act on their behalf. Financial powers of attorney usually cover financial, business, personal and real estate matters and authorize the person assigned to act on behalf of you as your power of attorney even after you become incapacitated or incompetent. Contemporaneous with the drafting of either, or both of these documents is the drafting of a living will. A living will is a legal document that a person uses to make known his or her wishes regarding life prolonging medical treatments.
