Helping You Set Up Powers of Attorney
While often overlooked, a power of attorney is a vital component of any estate plan. This document enables someone you trust to make financial decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so. Rather than go through the guardianship process at the last minute, you want to include a power of attorney in your estate plan now so you can appoint someone you trust to this role.
At the Law Offices of Naiman & Naiman, P.A., we will thoroughly evaluate your needs and assist you in drafting an estate plan that meets all of your goals. This way, you can worry less about the details and more about your family’s security.
Protect Your Finances and Your Assets
When you are unable to make your own financial decisions, the security of your assets could be at risk, and if your family is forced to go through the guardianship process, a Maryland judge may appoint a guardian you would not have wanted. This all puts a strain on you and your family and puts control over your assets in someone else’s hands.
To best protect your assets and ensure that decisions are made as you would have wished, you need to include powers of attorney in your estate plan before anything happens to you. Consult with a knowledgeable estate planning lawyer to discuss your options.
Establishing Advance Health Care Directives
While powers of attorney are one of the more important (and therefore common) components of an estate plan, advance health care directives are often necessary as well. This document appoints someone to make medical decisions on your behalf, should you be unable to do so. It also can be used to outline your end-of-life decisions, so the pressure will not be imposed on your family.
We have experience with a variety of directives, including Halachic living wills, which ensure that all decisions are made in accordance with Jewish law and custom. Visit our office outside Baltimore to explore the options available to you and build a trusted estate plan that protects your family and your assets.
