The Importance of Power of Attorney

A power of attorney is a legal document that authorizes another person that you have named to act on your behalf. A trustee with power of attorney can have as little or as much control over certain acts or circumstances. Arizona laws define several legal documents by which a person can name a trustee to speak for them, including through establishing a living will or last will and testament.

Please remember that, because of the responsibilities that come with power of attorney, it is vital to choose someone who is trustworthy, dependable and can ensure your wishes are followed.
