We all want to care for our loved ones, protect our assets, and plan for the future. Lynch Law can help. Each person, business, and family have individual needs and goals of what happens next. Your plan for the future starts here. Together we can help reduce potential real estate tax liability, plan for business succession, and make sure your assets go where you want them to go.

Durable Power of Attorney and Patient Advocacy Designation

A Durable Power of Attorney and Patient Advocacy Designation are powerful documents and an important part of any estate plan. Durable Power of Attorney allow you designate to an agent certain powers, including financial and business decisions, in the event you become incapacitated or mentally incompetent. Your agent’s power can be as broad or restrictive as you wish. However, a Patient Advocacy Designation advocate is the only way to ensure that your medical wishes are respected if you become incapacitated or mentally incompetent. Michigan law does not recognize living wills or advance medical directives. You have the right to name someone as your patient advocate and the right to have your medical treatment wishes respected.
