Establish Durable and Financial Power of Attorney With the Help of Our Westchester County Lawyer

Appointing a durable power of attorney gives you the opportunity to select a person you trust to manage your financial affairs in the event that you become incapacitated. You may also select a health care agent to make medical decisions on your behalf through a medical power of attorney in conjunction with a living will or advanced health care directive that specifies your wishes for medical treatment at the end of your life.

In order to protect against abuse of the power of attorney, under New York law, the agent must acknowledge (in writing) the obligation they have to the incapacitated person to make decisions in their best interest.

Attorney Barone has years of experience advising clients on the use of living wills, durable powers of attorney and other estate planning tools to protect their best interests going forward. He also has the necessary knowledge and skill to ensure that these instruments are properly formed and maintained, so as to abide by New York's strict guidelines.
