Helping To Establish Power Of Attorney In St. Louis

A durable power of attorney (POA) is a powerful legal document that gives another person the authority to make decisions regarding your affairs if you become unable to do so due to incapacity. It is an important part of an entire estate plan, but can also be created as a stand-alone document or in conjunction with a health care directive and/or health care power of attorney.

The Benefits Of Naming A Power Of Attorney

Creating a power of attorney for yourself or a loved one can have many benefits, including:

  • Allowing for the handling of your financial affairs in the event that you are incapacitated
  • Avoiding the need for expensive, time-consuming conservatorships and guardianships
  • Increased flexibility in handling your affairs

At the law firm of Sindel Noble we have experience preparing comprehensive powers of attorney for all clients. Whether your goal is to create a full estate plan or to address financial and health care decision-making, our St. Louis lawyers can help.

Create A Durable Power Of Attorney

A durable power of attorney will stay in effect even if you become incapacitated. You can create one that will not become effective until one or more physicians determine that you are incapacitated and unable to handle your financial affairs; that way you will retain decision-making power up until that time.

We will help you prepare for future uncertainties by explaining all your options and then carefully creating a power of attorney, will, estate plan or trust that fits you best.
