Power of Attorney

Power of Attorney Lawyers in Murfreesboro

Experienced Murfreesboro Advance Directive Attorneys

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt once said this now-famous quote. It was a call to the American people to take the courageous step of never giving up hope. The human spirit allows us to endure any hardship as long as we do not give in to fear.

The choice to not worry about the future is easier said than done, however, especially without an established plan. Should you ever be incapacitated, you do not want to hurl you and your family into a pit of fear.

This is why it is so crucial to establish a power of attorney before anything terrible should ever happen. While we hope for the best at Murfree & Goodman, PLLC, preparing for the worst is always the safest and kindest option. This is especially true when ensuring you are financially and medically cared for while securing the future of your loved ones.

If you are unable to act on your behalf, a power of attorney allows a trusted agent act for you. This legal document can ensure your wishes will be carried out even if you cannot do so yourself.

Our Rockvale advanced directive attorneys can help you with:

  • Drafting medical powers of attorney and other types of advance directive documents
  • Drafting financial powers of attorney
  • Creating a living will

Establish a plan to eliminate fear and anxiety for the future. Start creating your power of attorney or advance care plan with us today at (615) 895-7000. We help clients throughout Rutherford County, TN.

    Transferring Specific Powers to Your Agent

    Before a power of attorney has been received, you must clarify what motions or actions you are transferring to your agent. Otherwise, they will not be able to enact these powers when the occasion arises.

    Prior to granting power of attorney, determine whether you want your agent to be able to handle specific tasks. Some of these abilities include:

    • Designating, enacting, and managing any of the principal’s original legal and financial tasks
    • Changing allotments or motions for the principal’s other beneficiaries
    • Authorizing any of a living trust’s revisions
    • Pausing or abolishing a living trust
    • Creating, extending, changing, or diminishing survivorship rights
    • Renouncing the rights and entitlements of a beneficiary in a retirement plan due to changed circumstances
    • Making health care decisions on your behalf and handling your medical records
    • Carrying out your decisions about end of life care

    Support You Can Count On

    When you choose an agent to act as your power of attorney, you will grant them a portion of sovereignty. Therefore, it is crucial to identify a person whom you absolutely trust to safeguard your affairs and property. Whether you choose a close family member or reliable friend to your agent, make sure this person has a dependable character.

    Similarly, you’ll need a reliable legal team to ensure your estate management is designated precisely as you planned. Murfree & Goodman, PLLC, stands ready to provide effective, precise estate planning services for you.
