There may come a time when you are not able to physically or mentally care for yourself or handle your affairs. When this occurs or even before this occurs, Stoddard Law Firm
is here to assist you with establishing a Power of Attorney. It authorizes one person to make financial and legal decisions on your behalf, such as pay your bills, or run your business. Power of Attorney and guardianship decisions may not be limited to times when you are unable to make your own decisions. In fact, as long as there is someone you trust, it is usually a good idea to have such a document, regardless of your age, as having one can avoid significant legal difficulties should the unforeseen arise. We would be happy to discuss with you the pros and cons of having such a document, one important advantage of it being that it may avoid a future and far more complex guardianship proceeding, and the protections we can include within it.
