Power of Attorney

    The Lappe Law Firm prepares Power of Attorney for their clients.  Sometimes the client needs a Special Power of Attorney limited to one purpose, such as selling real estate or singing a document.  A Power of Attorney gives another person the authority to act or transact business on behalf of the person who made the Power of Attorney.  The Power of Attorney can be a general Power of Attorney for all purposes so that the one, who is authorized to act with the Power of Attorney, can transact all the business that the maker of the Power of Attorney can do.  The one who receives the authority in the Power of Attorney, "steps into the shoes", of the person signing the Power of Attorney. 

    A Power of Attorney can also be made for purposes of authorizing someone to make health care decisions.  This is a heath care Power of Attorney.
