Understanding The Different Roles Each Person Can Play
Our founding attorney, Jane Harris-Perry, became an attorney after helping her parents with their estate plan. Since then, our firm has helped countless clients navigate this complex area of the law. Remember that your will is unique to you. This means that the people you associate with elder care should also be personal. A power of attorney will speak on your behalf when it comes to your private affairs. Similarly, a health care directive explicitly states your wishes when it comes to medical care, should you become incapacitated.
A conservatorship is best for someone who wants a person they trust to manage their financial affairs due to old age, physical and mental limitations. A guardianship can be established so that an appointed loved one can make sure you get the care you need as you age. Having someone you trust is crucial in these moments. We are here to discuss your options, foster those sometimes difficult and awkward conversations and take the stress off of your shoulders. We also help you update your preferences should you change your mind. Significant life changes such as a dissolution of marriage may encourage you to do so.
