- Wills and Trusts
- Durable powers of attorney
- Healthcare proxy
- Charitable giving
- Professional trustee, guardian, and fiduciary

Decision Making Authority
Two ways in which a court can grant a family member the power to make financial or medical decisions on behalf of an elder parent or other family member: through a power of attorney document prepared while the parent is of sound mind, or through a legal guardianship if the parent is not competent.
A power of attorney is less costly and can be created with little difficulty. A guardianship proceeding, on the other hand, is much more complex. We can assist you with either one.
