Estate Planning Attorney in Alameda, CA

Be Prepared for the Unexpected

Life is full of unexpected events, and having a power of attorney (POA) in place allows to be prepared whatever may happen. This legal document allows you to appoint an agent or an attorney-in-fact to make legal and financial decisions on your behalf in the event that you became unable to make decisions for yourself. Having a power of attorney allows you to:

  • Establish clear and specific circumstances wherein the agent can act on your behalf.

  • Have the appointed agent conduct personal and business transaction, manage your assets property, file income tax returns, etc.; and

  • Indicate when the POA takes effect and when it ends.

Our experienced estate planning lawyer at the Law Offices of Andrew Dósa can discuss your options with you and prepare the necessary paperwork to help ensure you and your family’s future.

Medical & Financial Power of Attorney

There are several types of power of attorney that you can include in your estate plan, such as a financial or medical power of attorney.

A medical power of attorney, also known as a durable POA for healthcare is a type of advance healthcare directive that’s used to carry out your wishes if you became too ill or injured to speak for yourself. The healthcare proxy you name will be authorized to work with your physician and healthcare provider to make medical decisions for you.

On the other hand, a financial power of attorney grants your agent the authority to handle your financial affairs if you become incapacitated. Some POAs may be limited to a single transaction, while others have a more comprehensive scope.

Our California estate planning attorneys at the Law Offices of Andrew Dósa can discuss your options with you and provide legal assistance in preparing the documents to protect you and your family.
