Will and Power of Attorney

Shreveport, LA Estate Planning Attorneys Establish Wills and Powers of Attorney

Life offers us many challenges. You work hard, you save, you provide for your family. But what happens if you are no longer able to make decisions about your health care, your medical treatment, or your assets? Prevent all of your hard work from going to waste: create an estate plan that includes a Will and a Durable Power of Attorney with the help of Shreveport Will and Power of Attorney Lawyer Mark D. Frederick.

What is a Power of Attorney?

Power of attorney, also known as Durable Power of Attorney, is used to allow an agent, chosen by you, to handle all of your affairs during a period of time when you are unable to. If you have not chosen an agent to act as Durable Power of Attorney, the court will choose someone to act for you. Unless you have a Durable Power of Attorney in place that appoints your partner or another member of your family or a friend to make these vital decisions, he or she has no decision making authority. Having a Durable Power of Attorney already in place allows you to control who will make these important decisions for you. Attorney Frederick will work with you to create a plan that makes you feel peaceful about the transitions that are to come.

Creating a Will

Having legally drawn up Will in place is another powerful and important document, and if there is not one in order, the court system can decide what will happen to your assets by appointing someone to make decisions that, perhaps, you would not approve of. The Northwestern Louisiana estate planning attorney Mark D. Frederick can help guide you through the process to ensure that you have a valid Will that will fulfill your wishes in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.
