What can a power of attorney do?

A power of attorney is a document that gives another individual the ability to act as you would in certain circumstances. A durable power of attorney, though not necessary, is beneficial because it means that the document remains valid even if you become incapacitated. You can prepare both a medical power of attorney and a financial power of attorney.

Based on the document you prepare, a power of attorney can authorize someone to:

  • Pay your bills
  • Manage your investments
  • Oversee your medical care
  • Make health care decisions for you

For a power of attorney to be considered valid, you must be of sound mind when you sign the document and create it prior to becoming incapacitated. Because you never know if or when this could happen, it is best to create your power of attorney document right now, before the unknown becomes a reality.

I understand how important your future is and believe that with a power of attorney, you can maximize the years you have left. My clients are my number one priority, which means you can trust my representation as your Baton Rouge succession attorney.
