Power of Attorney

How power of attorney services are typically provided by Shebah Law Firm.

A power of attorney is a legal document that allows one person, known as the “principal,” to grant authority to another person, known as the “agent” or “attorney-in-fact,” to act on their behalf in legal, financial, or other matters. Here’s a general outline of how power of attorney services are provided:

  1. Consultation: Clients interested in establishing a power of attorney can schedule a consultation with the law firm. During this meeting, the attorneys at the firm explain the purpose, types, and implications of a power of attorney. They discuss the client’s specific needs, concerns, and goals to determine the most suitable type of power of attorney for their situation.
  2. Document Preparation: Once the client decides to proceed, the law firm prepares the necessary legal documents. Depending on the client’s requirements, this may involve drafting a general power of attorney, a limited power of attorney, a durable power of attorney, or a healthcare power of attorney. The attorneys ensure that the document accurately reflects the client’s wishes and complies with applicable laws.
  3. Explanation and Review: The law firm explains the contents of the power of attorney document to the client, including the powers granted to the agent and any limitations or restrictions. The client has the opportunity to ask questions and seek clarification on any aspects of the document. The attorneys may also review the document with the client to ensure their understanding and satisfaction.
  4. Execution and Notarization: Once the client is comfortable with the power of attorney document, the law firm assists in executing it properly. This typically involves signing the document in the presence of witnesses and a notary public to ensure its legal validity and enforceability.
  5. Filing and Distribution: Depending on the jurisdiction and the specific requirements, the law firm may assist in filing the power of attorney with the appropriate government authorities or organizations. They may also provide copies of the document to the client, the agent, and other relevant parties as necessary.
  6. Ongoing Support: Even after the power of attorney is established, the law firm continues to provide support and guidance. They may advise the client on how to effectively communicate with the agent, ensure compliance with legal obligations, and address any issues or concerns that may arise during the duration of the power of attorney.
