Enduring Power of Attorney

Our lawyers advise proactively on enduring powers of attorney (EPA), which designates a person to make necessary financial decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated due to illness or disability. We believe in planning ahead by asking questions and ensuring that your wishes are clearly outlined.

Personal Directive

A personal directive designates a person chosen by you to act as your agent if you are incapacitated, to make medical and personal care decisions on your behalf. These legal documents are drafted after a detailed discussion with you. Our service is client-focused and friendly, as matters of advanced care planning and medical directives and require a kind approach.
