Timothy Grier, Partner, presented to his colleagues at the BNI Revolution breakfast meeting. As a Wills, Estate and Trust lawyer, Tim has a wealth of knowledge to share regarding Powers of Attorneys, Representation Agreements and Committeeships.
Below is a brief description of each document.
Power of Attorneys
Allows someone else to act on your behalf if you are unable to. The power of attorney will be able to conduct banking for you, pay bills, sell property, etc.
A Representation Agreement is similar, in nature, to a Living Will. This document outlines your wishes regarding medical care when you are unable to speak for yourself.
When a person is incapable of handling his or her own affairs, a committeeship can be arranged so someone can act on their behalf.
If you are facing an issue with an elderly parent or don’t have a power of attorney for your spouse, give Tim Grier a call to set up a consultative appointment.
