Located in Camillus, a suburb of Syracuse, McMahon Law Firm, Attorneys and Counselors at Law, helps clients throughout upstate New York protect their financial and health care interests.
Financial Powers Of Attorney
As individuals age, many are no longer able to manage their own personal affairs and finances. Through a power of attorney, individuals name a friend or family member to manage their personal affairs and finances in the event they are no longer able to do so. By selecting a trusted confidant to manage your affairs, you can rest assured your financial responsibilities will be handled.
When illness or injury leaves individuals incapacitated, their families often struggle to pay their loved one's bills if they do not have access to their funds. By naming someone to be your power of attorney, you help reduce the burden on family members and ensure your financial obligations are met.
Health Care Proxies
Many people have strong beliefs about life-sustaining medicine. If dementia, Alzheimer's or other incapacitation renders you incapable to speak for yourself, it is important to have a health care proxy that clearly names someone to make medical care decisions on your behalf. In other states, health care proxies may be known as "medical powers of attorney."
At the McMahon Law Firm, our lawyers understand that the issues of selecting someone to be your health care proxy is deeply personal and has emotional components. We strive to serve our clients with compassion and sensitivity throughout the process.
