We can assist you with preparing a power of attorney document for financial and/or medical purposes.

The idea behind a power of attorney is to give someone the authority to act on your behalf. It can be used for a wide variety of situations and tailored to what responsibilities you want to trust someone else to undertake. At Fleischer Law Office, PLLC, we take the time to explain to you the legal aspects related to the type of power of attorney needed for your situation. The two main types are general powers of attorney and medical powers of attorney, also referred to as health care powers of attorney.

Power of Attorney in Hickory, North Carolina

A general power of attorney gives the appointed person the power to handle your financial matters if you are unable to do so. It outlines which duties they are allowed to perform and under what circumstances. A medical power of attorney is someone you agree can make medical decisions for you if you cannot voice your wishes for yourself. You do not have to appoint the same person for both financial and medical.

Neither type of power of attorney is something you should enter into without full comprehension of the responsibilities and authority you are bestowing on someone. We can also assist you with revoking a power of attorney should you decide to change who you wish to name or otherwise change what was contained in the original document.
