Powers of Attorney and Advance Medical Directives

Ada-Marie can help you appoint an agent to act on your behalf in the event of certain situations. A power of attorney names an agent to act with respect to management of the principal’s property and financial affairs. The advance medical directive generally: (1) provides a statement of the signatory’s wishes in the event the signatory has a terminal condition and is unable to speak for himself or herself (sometimes known as a “living will”), (2) appoints the signatory’s agents who can make health care decisions on the signatory’s behalf in the event of the signatory’s incapacity, and (3) provides authorization under HIPAA for the release of the signatory’s medical information to selected persons by hospitals, doctors, and insurance providers.

Ada-Marie will prepare powers of attorney and advance medical directives to ensure that your desires and wishes are honored in the event that a third party needs to make important decisions on your behalf.
