Powers of Attorney

Powers of Attorney & Medical Directives in Nova Scotia

A Power of Attorney allows you to appoint another individual to do “X” for you when you are unable to.  Throughout one’s life and often before one passes, there are times where one is unable to care for oneself.   If you are incapacitated, having someone who can carry out actions for you is essential.  Having a proper Power of Attorney can also ensure that a trusted friend rather than the Public Trustee (a government employee that will administer the financial affairs of those declared incompetent) can tend to your affairs and fulfill your wishes.

A Power of Attorney, while important for everyone, is often essential if one has an elderly parent requiring help.  As Nova Scotian Estate lawyers, we have experience, knowledge and compassion to deal with your needs and the needs of an elderly parent or loved one.
