Wills & Estate Planning

The process of estate planning can be difficult, both in terms of its emotional impact and in terms of the legal complications that may arise. Not only does a proper estate plan deal with issues related to what happens when you pass on, but it will also deal with complications that may arise while you are still living. This is why you should never attempt to plan your estate by yourself, and instead seek the guidance of an attorney with the knowledge and experience to guide you around potential pitfalls that may arise while you are planning your estate.

Power of Attorney & Guardianships

The attorneys at Blodnick, Fazio & Clark help clients who are planning for incapacity by establishing Powers of Attorney to carry out their financial, medical, and end of life decisions.  A Power of Attorney is a legal relationship that can be set up so that it is enacted immediately, or upon the event of incapacitation.

If your loved one is already incapacitated and did not appoint a Power of Attorney, the court may appoint a guardian or conservator to carry out the affairs.  While a court will usually appoint a spouse or other close family member, it may also look to evidence concerning what is in the incapacitated person’s wishes and best interests.

It is very important to appoint a Power of Attorney to avoid decisions being made for you that may have results you did not intend.  The attorneys at Blodnick, Fazio & Clark can assist you with creating a plan for incapacity that can ensure that your affairs are in order and your wishes are carried out when you are no longer able to do so.
