Wills, Enduring Power of Attorney and Personal Directives
If you are needing to draft your first will, or you are looking to make changes to your current will, our lawyers are able to work with you to ensure your last wishes with respect to your property and the guardianship of your infant children is adequately communicated to your executor. We have extensive experience in drafting clauses dealing with business, family trusts, special bequests and many other types of directions for your will.
In addition, we also can draft Enduring Power Attorney documents to ensure you have an Attorney who will be able to manage your financial affairs if you are alive, but unable due to mental incapacity to ensure your bills are paid, taxes are completed, home is dealt with and any other financial issue that may arise while you cannot make the decisions.
We will also draft Personal Directives (also known as a Living Will) to appoint someone to make any non-financial decision for you if you lose the ability to make these decision due to mental incapacity. These decisions can include major end-of-life decisions such as a do not resuscitate clause or a clause authorizing pain medication, but can also include who decides where you will live, your health care decisions and if you will continue to work (among other decisions) if you cannot make these decisions.
We understand that it is difficult discussing end-of-life or mental incapacity circumstances. Our lawyers are professional, efficient and sensitive to your needs, and strive to create a comfortable environment to discuss these issues.
