Powers of Attorney
Texas Powers of Attorney
Before you find yourself affected by an injury or illness, Texas law allows you to name somebody to help you when you need it most in a document known as a Power of Attorney or other advance directive. Putting your instructions in writing, in a way that complies with the law, will ensure your desires and decisions will be made by a person you have chosen explicitly. A medical power of attorney appoints someone you trust to help you with medical matters according to your preferences. A statutory durable power of attorney appoints someone you trust to help you with personal management matters, for example banking, insurance and the like. Having an attorney that is knowledgeable as well as empathetic to your situation will ensure the best planning for your needs.
