Unlike a Health Care Proxy, a Durable Power of Attorney allows you to designate someone (often a family member or trusted friend, over the age of 18) to act on your behalf in business, financial, personal and real estate matters in the event you become incapacitated or unable to make decisions. The provisions of each Durable Power of Attorney are different and can allow for your specific needs and desires. We recommend you speak with an attorney to discuss your requirements prior to drafting a Durable Power of Attorney.
