Power of Attorney

A power of attorney is a written authorization to represent or act on another's behalf in private affairs, financial or some other legal matter in the event that they are incapacitated or otherwise unavailable to act.

Before to creating your POA document, Shannon Murphy Wills & Estates lawyer will provide you with legal advice enabling you to choose the type of Power of Attorney to meet your objectives and ensure your personal care and property is taken care of by the right people during your time of need.

The role of government is to act as substitute decision-maker of last resort only for people who have no one else to make decisions on their behalf.
By making powers of attorney, people can plan ahead and be confident their plans will be carried out.

Here is an oldie but goodie booklet from the Ontario Government on power of attorney for property and power of attorney for personal care.

Shannon is happy to have a no charge initial consultation with you to advise what, if any, legal work you need completed.

Shannon has also developed a complimentary Estate Planning Guide to help get you prepared for your no charge initial consultation.
