Power Of Attorney

Giving You The Peace Of Mind You Deserve

Many people believe that estate planning is essentially all about the question, "Who gets what?" A comprehensive estate plan will answer this question, but it will also answer another equally important question: "Who does what?"

This gets to the heart of people's most personal priorities. They touch on things as varied as health care decisions, legal authority and financial decision-making. Because the unexpected can happen at any time, a thorough estate plan should account for these issues. Kuhn Law Firm, P.A., can help you use power of attorney documents to ensure that all your priorities are accounted for.

The law surrounding power of attorney in Florida changed in late 2011. If you have a power of attorney drawn up prior to then, you may have given up rights you never intended to. Our lawyers draw on years of estate planning experience, and can quickly but thoroughly review all parts of your estate plan to figure out what you need for legal security.

  • With a general durable power of attorney, you can designate someone to handle all of your affairs.
