Creating a Power of Attorney in Raleigh NC

Happy Family - Power of Attorney in Raleigh NC

Life is unpredictable sometimes and bad things can occur to good people. At Piekaar Law Firm, we can help you create a thorough power of attorney which is a legal document giving another person the legal ability to act on your behalf. In most cases, people give their agent, often a loved one, the power to handle all of their finances and make decisions regarding their health care.

Often there are 2 different types of powers of attorney necessary to create a sound estate plan: Financial Power of Attorney and Healthcare Power of Attorney.

Without a power of attorney, a court proceeding may need to occur simply so you can pay for a loved one's bills or have the ability to speak to their dentist or doctor.
