Who Will You Trust to Make Your Financial and Health Care Decisions?
This is one of the most challenging questions that people face as they are creating their estate plan and is only one of the many questions that come with powers of attorney and patient advocate designations. When establishing an estate plan, it is important to work with an experienced legal team that will help you navigate the complex challenges that come with drafting these documents.
At Bingham Legal Group PC, our lawyers take the time to understand our clients’ needs in order to help them create thorough, effective estate plans. Our attorneys have more than 20 years of experience handling estate planning and long-term care planning for clients throughout Michigan, including Metro Detroit.
Power of Attorney and Designation of Patient Advocate
At Bingham Legal Group PC, we can help you establish two important estate planning documents:
- Power of attorney: A power of attorney (POA) establishes an agent (called an attorney in fact) to handle the principal’s financial affairs, and it details the scope of authority and manner in which financial affairs should be handled.
- Designation of patient advocate: A designation of patient advocate is a legal document that establishes an agent to take care of the principal’s medical and health care decisions. Within this document, we can also guide clients in leaving detailed instructions for the agent to follow regarding how health care decisions should be handled.
An Integrated Estate Plan
One of the most complicated aspects of estate planning and elder law is creating these documents to work in concert with each other and with the other estate planning documents.
We have more than 20 years of legal experience. With a focus on thorough, client-driven legal service, we will work with you to create an integrated, legally effective estate plan that will work as it should and will help you avoid probate litigation.
