Powers Of Attorney

Have you thought about who will make decisions for you if you become incapacitated and are no longer able to make sound decisions for yourself? Without putting plans in place, these decisions could be left in the hands of judges. Furthermore, your loved ones could face wrenching decisions about medical treatment and other important matters.

By establishing powers of attorney, you can take control of these matters today, putting plans in place that will fulfill your wishes regardless of what the future holds.

At George & Davis, P.C., we can help you establish powers of attorney and other estate planning documents that provide peace of mind in the face of an uncertain future. We have extensive experience handling these critical legal matters for clients in Sturbridge and throughout surrounding Massachusetts communities.

Durable Power Of Attorney

A durable power of attorney allows you to name a trusted representative to make financial decisions on your behalf. The authority you give to your agent can be as narrow or broad as you want it to be. Common duties included in a durable power of attorney include:

  • Signing checks
  • Paying bills
  • Managing bank accounts and investments
  • Purchasing real estate

We can help you establish powers of attorney that protect your wealth and assets and spare your loved ones from having to go through guardianship proceedings.

Living Wills And Health Care Proxies

Living wills are important documents that provide instructions on medical treatment you would and would not like to receive in certain situations, typically end-of-life and life-sustaining treatment such as feeding tubes and assisted hydration.

A health care proxy is a person you can appoint to make health care-related decisions for you if you cannot make sound decisions for yourself.

We can help you establish all of the documents you need, including Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) release forms, so that your loved ones have access to your medical information and have clear guidance from you regarding future medical decisions.
