What if an accident or illness left you unable to tell doctors what kind of medical treatment you want, or made it impossible to manage your financial affairs. Although such thoughts are not pleasant, the truth is that almost every family will face this kind of difficulty. A power of attorney is a legal document that gives someone you choose the power to act in your place. A medical power of attorney in Utah also allows you to specify advance healthcare directives, which are what actions should be taken for your health by medical providers if you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself. These types of decisions should be made after careful thought and consideration and discussion with a qualified and diligent attorney. I can provide you with experienced guidance related to your durable power of attorney, springing power of attorney, or medical power of attorney.
