Power of Attorney/Simple Wills

Life changes can occur at the blink of an eye. When those changes are expected or unexpected, don’t be caught unprepared. Choosing someone to make important decisions for you when you are unable to make them for yourself is an important decision itself. A power of attorney designates someone to act on your behalf regarding financial, healthcare and/or other decisions while you are alive, but become unavailable or incapacitated. Preparing a will gives you the power to decide who will distribute your property where you want it to go, who will be a guardian over your children if no spouse survives, etc., after you die. If you don’t express your desires in a way that complies with state requirements, the government decides for you. Make sure your wishes are drafted correctly so your wishes can be fulfilled. Start planning for tomorrow today.

Let the Chisolm Law Firm facilitate the administration of the estate as efficiently and effectively as possible. This firm focuses on resolving conflicts, helping you save time, money and emotional hardship, during an already difficult time.
