Should you hire a lawyer to write a power of attorney?

With the prevalence of such sites as RocketLawyer, many people erroneously believe that all it takes to have a durable power of attorney in place is a simple click of the mouse button. However, there are a number of reasons why you should hire a lawyer to handle this complex legal issue.

An Attorney Understands that people have different needs

Here are a good number of reasons why hiring an experienced Elder Law attorney is essential to protect your interests:

  • Limited vs. broad scope: no two people have the same needs. A limited power of attorney only grants a very narrow scope to your attorney-in-fact, whereas a broad power of attorney grants more power to your attorney-in-fact. You won’t know what you’ll need on yours until you speak to an attorney like Jay, who will break it down for you in very simple but complete terms.
  • Durability issues: if you become incapable of making your own legal and/or financial decisions, you will need a durable power of attorney. Only an attorney knows the proper language to put in to make it durable in the event of a tragedy, so you will need the advice of someone like Jay to make sure it can be enforced!
  • Effectiveness and revocability: sometimes, a power of attorney needs to be revoked, for whatever reason. Or, in the alternative, it needs to be enforced in an immediate and dire situation. Without an attorney to properly draw it up, you may find yourself the victim of an unfortunate fate!
