Why You Should Have An Advance Directive Or Power Of Attorney

In the event that something happens to you, whether because of old age or illness, a power of attorney or a health care directive can be beneficial. These documents allow a family member to act as your agent in the state of North Carolina should you become incapacitated. Due to the serious nature of such legal documents and the authority they grant your appointee, it is best to consult an attorney before you start.

At Parker & Frey PLLC, we want to help you preserve your wishes in case of unforeseen circumstances. As such, we will work with you to draft up the appropriate powers of attorney or a living will that fits your needs. If you are planning for the future or for an elderly loved one, take advantage of our services and experience with elder law matters today.

Get One That Is Right For You

Since the details of your life is unique to you, your power of attorney or directive must reflect it. For this reason, a tailored document is much more preferable and secure than something you can find online.

Let our lawyers assist you with ironing out the terms and conditions of the following documents and more:

  • General power of attorney
  • Limited power of attorney
  • Springing power of attorney
  • Durable power of attorney
  • Health care power of attorney
  • Health care proxy
  • DNR or "Do Not Resuscitate" orders
