Estate Law Practice
Our Firm drafts and prepares Last Wills and Testaments, Living Wills and Durable Powers of Attorney among other important documents.
A living will is a legal document which allows a personal representative, who you appoint, to either make important medical decisions on your behalf or to ensure that you receive the healthcare you indicated in the living will in the event you are incapacitated.
Power of Attorney
A durable power of attorney is a legal document which allows a personal representative, who you appoint, to make important business decisions of your behalf in the event you become incapacitated.
However, it is imperative for your protection that the document includes safe guards (provisions) on how to determine whether you are truly incapacitated. This will ensure that someone -perhaps a family member- will not attempt to take over your business affairs for an improper purpose or their own benefit.
The living will and a durable power of attorney are somewhat similar, but the former deals with medical issues and the latter deals with business related matters.
If you own property, you may need a will to properly set out your wishes for distributing your estate upon your death. Attorney, Reid S. Baker is an experienced professional in wills and estate planning and he is fully qualified to give you the appropriate advice about your options in that regard.
