Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney

There is nothing worse than a friend, relative or neighbour getting seriously ill or passing away without Powers of Attorney or a Will in place. In the case of serious illness who makes the decisions? In the case of death, how does the property get distributed? Preparing your Power of Attorney or your Will is not something that you should leave until late in life. You should do this when you are young and make appropriate revisions as time goes on. Making the right decisions is another issue. Sometimes people make decisions that are based on an emotion that they feel at that moment. One of our experienced lawyers at McHugh Whitmore LLP can help you to make rational and clear decisions about what you want in case of serious illness or death. It may not seem like a pleasant task, but we'll help you through it. Our professionals know the law and will help you to feel comfortable with your decisions.
