Powers of Attorney

Miller Law Firm offers expert advice on how to get power of attorney and which type is best for each individual’s life situation. Our elder law services are available in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.

In order to assist someone else in their legal affairs or get help yourself, you need general power of attorney.  This is a document that permits a designated individual, called the principal, to make decisions in the case of absence or illness of another person. It is a good idea to set this up as you get older. Miller Law Firm can help you in obtaining and understanding durable power of attorney and other types of this legal agreement. If you need help from a trustworthy elder law firm, you came to the right address.

What is a power of attorney?

Types of Power of Attorney

Durable Power of Attorney

If power of attorney is durable, that means it remains in effect even if the person is incapacitated.  The power continues until the individual dies or legally changes the agreement. 

Medical Power of Attorney

This allows the principal to make healthcare decisions for another individual who is unable to do so because of an illness or disease. 

General Power of Attorney

General power gives the ability to do anything the person could do themselves, including paying bills and signing legal documents.  It is used for assistance. General power of attorney ends if the person becomes unable to make their own decisions because of injury, illness, or death.

Financial Power of Attorney

This document allows the principal to make financial decisions for the individual.

Irrevocable Power of Attorney

Most powers of attorney change or end under specific circumstances.  With irrevocable power of attorney, the document is set in stone throughout the person’s life unless otherwise stated.

These are just a small sampling of the many types of power of attorney.  More information can be found through the American Bar Association.

Why is Power of Attorney Important?

In case you ever become unable to manage your own financial and medical concerns, you should have power of attorney in place.  It does not take away your ability to make your own decisions.  Rather, it puts future choices in the hands of someone you trust.  While you are still able to decide things, you can.  Springing power of attorney prevents your principal from taking charge while you are still able to.  Having it set up won’t hurt now, and it will help later.

Great experience.

I hired Steve do defend a consumer credit matter that was dubious from the start.
He was knowledgeable and the case was successful along the lines he predicted.
I would definitely hire Steve again.
