A power of attorney is a document that appoints a named person (your agent) to make personal
and financial decisions for you while you are alive. The power of attorney can be effective
immediately or only in the event of disability or incapacity. The authority of an agent under a
power of attorney terminates upon death. Without a power of attorney it might be necessary to
become involved in a lengthy and expensive court proceeding to have a guardian appointed.
The medical power of attorney / living will appoints a medical health care decision maker when
you can no longer make your own health care decisions. It also includes instructions explaining
your wishes for end oflife care.
When you die with or without a will, your estate must be settled through a court probate process
to insure proper distribution of your assets to your loved ones. We assist the personal
representative (either executor or administrator) of your estate to gather your assets, pay your
debts, and distribute the assets as you have specified. We provide all services to completely
administer and settle your estate.
If you die with a trust, Pennsylvania law requires that the trust be settled in a manner similar to
the settlement of an estate. We are able to assist your successor trustee properly settle the trust.
