Durable Power of Attorney: An Essential Estate Planning Tool
We are regularly asked by clients what they can do to ensure that they are protected financially if, in the event of an accident, an unexpected illness, or a period of incapacity, they are unable to make financial and business decisions for themselves. We advise clients to have a trusted family member or friend serve as their Power of Attorney to ensure that they are protected and that their business decisions and finances can be managed for them, if needed. This essential document is an important part of Estate Planning, and we provide detailed information about Durable Powers of Attorney with the articles, What’s Durable Power of Attorney and Execute a Power of Attorney Before it’s too Late.
With offices in Orange Park, Jacksonville, and St. Augustine, our Elder Law Attorneys help numerous clients in North Florida prepare for periods of incapacity or illness by preparing Florida statutorily recommended Durable Power of Attorney documents to ensure that trusted loved ones or family members can make important and timely decisions for them as needed.
