Power of Attorney


     A Power of Attorney is a legal authorization that allows one person to make legal decisions and act for another party.  There are many different situations when granting  a Power of Attorney to someone you trust is in your best interest.  A Power of Attorney can also be used for health care decisions and appointment of a health care representative.  Powers of Attorney are common when one person is unable to be present for the signing of a contract, or when that person has been incapacitated.  A Durable Power of Attorney remains effective even if the principal is no longer able to communicate his or her wishes.    However, unfortunately, a person may misuse a Power of Attorney for their own benefit, and not the Principal’s. Therefore, careful thought, in consultation with our attorneys, is important.  We have experience in these matters and been involved in litigation to see that corrective actions are taken and recover what may have been lost.


    Our Lancaster Attorney firm can also assist in making out a separate Health Directive, also known as a Living WiIl, which states who can speak on your behalf, and specifies, in detail, what your wishes actually are. Thus, your wishes are more likely to be clear and carried out; and family members, who may have been unaware of those wishes, are less likely to interfere when decisions become necessary and you are no longer capable of expressing your own wishes directly.
