Powers of Attorney

A durable general power of attorney for financial matters allows you to name someone to make financial decisions on your behalf in the event you are unable to make such decisions yourself.  Such decisions may include not only paying your regular bills, but having your personal income tax returns prepared and filed, working with the trustee of any revocable trust you may have created, and if appropriate, making gifts to certain designated classes of beneficiaries, such as to your children and grandchildren.
