In addition to a Will, most people at some time will need a Power of Attorney and a Living Will, also called an Advanced Directive.
A Power of Attorney allows you to appoint your loved ones or a trusted friend to handle your affairs if you become incapacitated or unavailable.
An Advance Directive will allow you to make or appoint a loved one or friend to make important medical decisions for you when you are unable, rather than a hospital, or worse, a Court. These documents can be quickly and efficiently prepared.
