A comprehensive estate plan not only plans for your death, but also plans for the possibility of your incapacitation. With proper planning, you can decide who makes financial decisions for you when you are unable to make those decisions for yourself. At the law firm of Boehm & Boehm, we help individuals plan for possible incapacitation using powers of attorney. We have over 30 years of experience helping clients create effective estate plans, and we can help you do the same.
There are several different types of powers of attorney. A durable power of attorney for property (DPAP) gives someone you trust the power to manage your financial and real estate holdings if you are incapacitated. These documents can be drawn very narrowly or very broadly depending on your preferences. The most effective DPAPs specifically enumerate the powers given to the named agent. Attorney Garrett L. Boehm is experienced in drafting durable powers of attorney that effectively grant your agent the powers necessary to manage your estate. He is also skilled in creating living trusts, another tool used to deal with your property if you are incapacitated.
