Guidance On Creating A Power of Attorney

A power of attorney is like a contingency plan in case there comes a time when you are no longer able to handle your financial affairs on your own. It appoints an agent (called the Attorney in Fact) to handle your financial affairs and gives that person direction for how you want your finances handled. It is a good idea for everyone with assets to have a power of attorney, and it is important to make sure that this is done accurately and effectively.

We can help. At The Law Office of John Iaccarino, in San Mateo County, you will find a lawyer with more than 20 years of experience in estate planning. We can help you create your power of attorney document helps ensure accuracy and effectiveness. It also allows for greater flexibility, allowing you to do more with your power of attorney than you could with an online form.

Why You Need A Power Of Attorney

There are some key benefits to working with us as your lawyers to draft a power of attorney document:

  • Avoiding conservatorship: A well-drafted power of attorney appoints an agent. This is someone you trust to handle your financial affairs if you become incapacitated. Without this document or if the document is not properly drafted, the court will appoint a conservator, someone you don't know at all, to take authority over your financial affairs.
  • Giving direction: The power of attorney also gives detailed directions to your agent as to how exactly you want your finances handled.
  • Gaining assurance: We make the process as simple as possible. When you work with us, we take the time to help you understand your options. Our experience gives you assurance that everything will be in place.
