Powers of Attorney in Harrisburg and Hershey
Living Wills - Health Care Proxies - Advance Directives
Having a power of attorney and an advance health care directive (also known as a living will) on file is an essential component of any proper estate plan. These documents are best thought of as a type of insurance policy in the event that you are ever incapacitated and can no longer make your own financial or medical decisions.
At Purcell, Krug & Haller, our Harrisburg and Hershey lawyers have decades of experience helping our clients draft sound legal documents that are tailored to fit their unique needs. One of our biggest strengths is our ability to help clients think about contingencies, the accidents or events that might lead to incapacitation. We understand how difficult that can be, so we are patient and caring in our approach.
To learn more about powers of attorney, living wills and planning for incapacitation, please call 717-260-3485 (Harrisburg) or 717-533-3836 (Hershey). You can also email us. We provide free initial consultations.
Drafting Powers of Attorney
Granting someone a power of attorney means essentially that you are giving that individual the legal authority to act on your behalf under a set of specific circumstances. Typically, the decision-making authority will cover any health care and financial decisions that you will be unable to make due to physical or mental incapacitation.
Our experienced Dauphin County estate planning lawyers will work closely with you to establish both a health care power of attorney and a financial power of attorney. We can also help you set up a limited power of attorney if your needs will be temporary, such as undergoing surgery. In either case, these plans help ensure that your wishes will be carried out if you are ever in the position where you are unable to make decisions for yourself. It is an invaluable insurance plan for the future.
Help With Living Wills
A living will, formally known as an advance health care directive or health care proxy, is also an important document that can ensure your wishes are carried out. These tools specify the types of medical care you wish to receive under certain conditions. You get to name with specificity the exact type of care you want in any number of situations. For example, you can provide directions to your loved ones about whether or not you want to be kept alive on life support. The estate planning attorneys at Purcell, Krug & Haller will work closely with you to ensure this document is tailored to suit your needs.
