If you become sick or unable to make decisions for yourself, do you have a plan in place to have someone you trust make financial decisions for you? What about medical decisions? In Washington, you can create a legal document called a Power of Attorney (POA) to authorize another person to make decisions on your behalf. In this workshop you will learn about Washington’s Durable Power of Attorney for Finances and Durable Power of Attorney Health Care. We will discuss the law that governs them and the practical issues to be aware of when creating or revoking them. You will also have access to forms that you can use to draft your own Durable Power of Attorney for Finances and Durable Power of Attorney Health Care.
This workshop is taught by McKean Evans, an attorney at Pivotal Law Group. Mr. Evans is an attorney who handles estate planning matters, including powers of attorney. He has taught seminars regarding Washington’s Uniform Power of Attorney Act. Although Mr. Evans will be explaining the law regarding powers of attorney, the seminar is not legal advice regarding any specific individual or circumstances. The workshop will last 60 minutes.
