Incapacity & Disability Planning (Powers of Attorney)
Washington law permits a wide range of advance planning to designate persons who may act for you in financial and health care decision-making when you are not competent or physically able to handle such matters. We prepare durable general powers of attorney for financial affairs and durable powers of attorney for health care to suit our clients’ individual needs. Planning for incapacity or disability is not just for elders. Accidents and the sudden onset of disease or illness is not confined to any specific age group. We assist the children of our clients in a similar planning process taking into consideration needs that may differ from their parents.
