Powers of Attorney are legal instruments that can be used when an individual is unable to execute documents on his or her own behalf. The Power of Attorney instrument can be limited to specific transactions. It also can be a powerful document that allows you to designate a person of your choice to manage your financial affairs. These affairs can be extensive and could include such things as buying and selling real estate, opening and closing bank accounts, or signing tax returns. Drafting an appropriate Power of Attorney is essential to establish or limit the powers you intend to give to someone else. The attorneys at Gleason Hope Law will guide you through that decision-making and drafting process.
