Personalized Services From Two Certified Elder Law Attorneys
Advance care directives and powers of attorney are two estate planning tools that many people prefer not to think about. However, they are immensely important for protecting your rights in the event of an injury or illness.
At Kreisher Marshall & Associates, LLC, we work with people in the Bloomsburg area to create customized, airtight advance care directives and powers of attorney. Both of our attorneys are board-certified in elder law. This rare certification is held by only 60 attorneys in all of Pennsylvania.
Why Have An Advance Directive?
Life is unpredictable. No one knows when they might have an accident or illness that prevents them from making decisions for themselves. In the event that you no longer have the capacity to communicate with others or make informed decisions, your family and medical team will rely on the advance care directive in your estate plan. If you do not have one, you have no assurance that your team will know your wishes or understand how to proceed with your care.
What Is A Power Of Attorney?
A power of attorney is a document that grants someone else the right to make legal decisions for you if you lose your capacity. Say, for example, you suffer a stroke and cannot speak for yourself. You could name your spouse, sibling or adult child your power of attorney and they could sign legal, financial and medical documents for you. Our estate law attorneys can sit down with you, answer your questions and discuss your options for a cohesive, thorough estate plan.
