People often refer to a “power of attorney” as an ancillary estate planning document. However, they are anything but ancillary when the need for them arises. If you or someone you love become incapacitated due to illness or injury, it is important to have a chain of command make medical and financial decisions.
Hubbard and Rotthier can help you understand the different types of powers of attorney and advise in the selection of appropriate agents for healthcare and finances. As part of our estate planning, wills and trusts services, and long-term care planning, we regularly prepare powers of attorney. These powers of attorney include:
