Powers of Attorney
Two of the most important legal documents you should have are a Continuing Power of Attorney for Property (Financial) and a Power of Attorney for Personal Care. That’s why you need an experienced powers of attorney lawyer in Hamilton from MacKinnon Law Associates. Powers of Attorney matter because they allow you to choose who can decide and act on your behalf if you are unable to. Without valid Powers of Attorney (Property and Personal Care), the Province of Ontario may obtain the legal authority to make financial and personal care decisions for you in the event of your incapacity (due to stroke, brain injury, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, etc.) at significant cost and aggravation to you and your loved ones. Powers of Attorney are conveniently done at the same time you make your Will.
A Will, like a Power of Attorney, allows you to choose who will act on behalf of your estate (Executor/Estate Trustee) to ensure that the final wishes set out in your Will are carried out and that your estate is administered in accordance with the law. No Will is simple, especially today with blended families being so prevalent. We listen to you and provide you with the best legal and estate planning advice for your particular circumstances.
