If you’re reading this, chances are, you know it’s urgent.

Do you need a Power of Attorney? Michael Anderson explains

I had a great meeting with a couple in my office today.

They are the type of people that will remind you of your parents.

Just good and wholesome folks.

They were told they needed to do estate planning and had a question about a power of attorney.

So I decided to do a quick video to explain what a power of attorney is.

Watch it here —

So in this video I explain what a power of attorney is, how it works and why you need one in your estate plan.  You ought to have a power of attorney.  For estate planning purposes, the power of attorney (POA) needs to be a durable POA, or one that works when you are not able to make decisions on your own.

The main decisions you need to be able to make are (1) financial decisions and (2) health care decision.  With a proper power of attorney, you’re not going to miss a house payment, a utility payment, or have trouble with the bank or credit union when you have incapacity issues show up.

If you have questions about a power of attorney, probate or estate matter in Utah give me a call and I would be honored to work with you my friend.

Until next time,

Why Should You Call Me?

People who want a lot of Bull go to a Butcher. People who want results navigating a complex legal field go to a Lawyer that they can trust.

That’s where I come in. I am Michael Anderson, an Attorney in the Salt Lake area focusing on the needs of the Average Joe wanting a better life for him and his family. I’m the Lawyer you can trust.

I grew up in Utah and love it here. I am a Father to three, a Husband to one, and an Entrepreneur. I understand the feelings of joy each of those roles bring, and I understand the feeling of disappointment, fear, and regret when things go wrong.

I have focused my practice in Wills, Trusts, Real Estate, and Business Law. I love the thrill of helping clients secure their future, leaving a real legacy to their children. Unfortunately when problems arise with families. I also practice Family Law, with a focus on keeping relationships between the soon to be Ex’s civil for the benefit of their children and allowing both to walk away quickly with their heads held high.

Before you worry too much about losing everything that you have worked for, before you permit yourself to be bullied by your soon to be ex, before you shed one more tear in silence, call me. I’m the Lawyer you can trust.

No Bull.
