Legal Documents

Wills, Power of Attorney Documents, Living Wills

Very often when the topic of “Wills” is discussed with a client I am told, “I am all set because I have a Will.” I then respond, “No you’re not!”

A Will, alone, is often not adequate. Clients need to execute three different documents:

  1. a Power of Attorney,
  2. a Living Will (often referred to as Final Directives),  and
  3. a Will.

Each document of these documents has a different purpose and each addresses very different circumstances.
