We Can Protect Your Assets

Many people have misconceptions about asset protection. There is confusion about what you can keep, what you must sell, which types of assets are protected, gifts you can make, and whether trusts will or won’t protect your home. While some seniors want to pass the majority of their assets to their children and grandchildren after they die, many elderly individuals are also interested in protecting their home and assets in case they are ever incapacitated.

Power of Attorney

Power of attorney is a legal arrangement in which one person grants another person the authority to make legally binding decisions on their behalf. The person granting power of attorney can decide what type of decisions the attorney-in-fact can make regarding healthcare or business-related matters. If you want to draft a power of attorney, it’s crucial that you fully trust the person to whom you're granting this authority.

Contact our law firm today to discuss any of the following types of power of attorney:

  • Limited Power of Attorney: Used to grant limited authority in a single transaction, such as a real estate deal. A limited power of attorney automatically terminates once the transaction is complete.
  • Durable Power of Attorney: Unlike a limited power of attorney, a durable power of attorney doesn’t automatically expire, however, the principal can dissolve it at any time. A durable power of attorney also isn’t restricted to a single transaction and covers a broader subject matter, such as medical decisions you want in certain situations.
  • Springing Power of Attorney: With this arrangement, the power of attorney doesn’t go into effect until a specified event occurs, such as incapacity or disability.
