Skilled Guidance with Estate Planning Matters in Hillside, Maywood, Elmhurst, and Across Illinois

Powers of attorney are among the most important estate planning tools. A power of attorney (POA) is a document that designates a personal nominee to act on your behalf should you become incapacitated at some point in the future. This provides the assurance of knowing that your affairs will be handled by a trusted individual if you are no longer able to handle them yourself. In the absence of a POA, the court may appoint a guardian to oversee your affairs, with no guarantee that this person will act in your best interests.

At the Law Office of Vincent C. Machroli, P.C., we understand the importance of POAs and the role such documents play in a well-rounded estate plan. For over 30 years, we have helped clients with powers of attorney in DuPage County, Cook County, and all other counties within the greater Chicago metro area. We are honest, compassionate, responsive, and detail-oriented. We take the time to listen to our clients and thoroughly understand their needs, so we can craft solutions to fully address those needs. It is our commitment to highly personalized customer service that has earned us so many repeat clients and referrals over the years.

There are two types of powers of attorney in Illinois:

  • Medical (a.k.a. Health Care) Power of Attorney
  • Financial (a.k.a. Property) Power of Attorney

Medical Powers of Attorney

A medical power of attorney grants authority to a named agent to make health care decisions on your behalf in the event that you are no longer able to make these decisions yourself. A medical POA is often used in conjunction with a living will to provide advanced directives on what types of end-of-life health care procedures you want, and which ones to forego. Though a living will may be sufficient for this purpose, designating a trusted agent to carry out the directives within the living will can provide an additional level of security in knowing that your wishes will be carried out.

Financial Powers of Attorney

A financial power of attorney grants authority to a named agent to make decisions regarding your assets, property, bank accounts, business, and other financial matters should you become incapacitated. If you were to become unable to manage your financial affairs, your will or trust would not be helpful while you are still alive. Without a financial POA, there is a risk that the management of your business and financial affairs could fall into the wrong hands.

Powers of attorney are among the simpler estate planning documents, but they still need to be worded very carefully to ensure your interests are fully protected. The Law Office of Vincent C. Machroli, P.C. has extensive experience crafting POAs for individuals in a wide range of circumstances. We put this experience to work to provide security and peace of mind for our clients.
