Power Of Attorney

Power of Attorney Puts Your
Important Decisions Into Legal Documents

Establishing power of attorney is commonly referred to as "advance directives." It provides you with a means to clearly state your wishes regarding financial decisions and life-saving medical measures in case you become incapacitated and cannot make these decisions on your own.

At Janssen Law, PLC in Des Moines, we incorporate power of attorney for health care and financial matters into the comprehensive estate plans that we develop for our clients in Polk County and across Central Iowa.

An estate plan that was created a few years ago may no longer reflect your wishes. We can review an existing estate plan and amend the power of attorney or any other component to ensure your wishes are current. Contact us to schedule a meeting.

Help Your Loved Ones Make The Right Decisions

You may have definite opinions about the level of life-saving medical care you wish to receive if you are injured or become seriously ill. Similarly, certain financial decisions may be necessary at a time when you are no longer of sound mind to make them. If you do not leave clear instructions and fail to designate a health care proxy or someone who has authority to make financial decisions on your behalf, your loved ones will have to navigate complex legal proceedings to make these decisions for you. Your loved ones will have the assurance that your wishes are being followed.
