Durable Power of Attorney Lawyer in Glendora
Appoint the Right Person to Protect Your Future
No one wants to think about it, but there may come a time when you cannot make your own decisions. A variety of accidents, diseases, or other unforeseen circumstances may leave your family struggling with care and decision-making. Unfortunately, the person left out of the discussions is the person it affects the most – you.
By creating a durable power of attorney now, you can protect your future. You can choose who should make your decisions and give some directions regarding your finances and health care wishes. You can name any trusted adult as your agent in your power of attorney. They do not need to be a lawyer or even a relative. They should be someone you trust whom you expect to be willing and able to take care of your needs if you are incapacitated.
