San Jose Durable Power of Attorney
Estate Planning Law Firm Serving Santa Clara, Alameda and San Mateo Counties
A durable power of attorney gives someone you trust the ability to manage your assets should you become unable to do so yourself. An important estate planning document, the durable power of attorney gives the person you designate the ability to stand in your shoes and administer your affairs if you become physically or mentally unable to do so.
People often name their spouse, child, sibling, or attorney as their agent in a durable power of attorney.
A power of attorney is different from an advance healthcare directive, which gives another person the ability to make healthcare decisions on your behalf. Even if the person you designate is the same, you should have both documents prepared. The power of attorney is for your assets and the advance healthcare directive is for your medical care.
