Both powers of attorney and living wills are valuable estate planning tools that can benefit individuals now and in the future. A power of attorney is awarded to one individual to act on behalf of another. A living will is a legal document laying out an individuals' medical and health preferences, to be used if that individual becomes unable to make those decisions on his or her own.

Power of Attorney

A power of attorney has the legal right to act on behalf of another person who may be unable to make sound decisions on his or her own. A power of attorney typically fulfills the following duties:

  • Handling finances and bank accounts
  • Writing checks, withdrawing money from bank accounts
  • Handling insurance issues
  • Filing tax returns
  • Doing paperwork

We also help individuals and families set up guardianships. Call 1-800-ABOGADO for more information.

Living Wills

A living will documents the health and medical preferences of an individual, to be used if he or she becomes incapacitated and unable to make these decisions independently. A living will can address the concerns of individuals regarding:

  • End-of-life procedures
  • The use of life support
  • What types of medical procedures can be used
