Wills, Living Wills And Powers Of Attorney

Creating a will or healthcare directive can help you and your family avoid a number of legal difficulties should you suddenly die, or become incapacitated and unable to make decisions for yourself. A will, living will, or power of attorney can provide the legal grounds for dividing your assets, specifying what sorts of end of life decisions should be made, and who has the legal authority to make healthcare decisions for you. At the law office of Quatrini Rafferty, our lawyers explain and discuss the legal options available to clients for ensuring their wishes are protected and honored after death or in sickness. The legal documents you create can provide clear communication to your family. This can prevent disagreement among family members, in regard to both end of life decisions and disposition of your estate.

To schedule a consultation to discuss how a will or healthcare directive can help you, contact wills and healthcare directive attorneys at the law office of Quatrini Rafferty in Greensburg, Pennsylvania.

Powers of Attorney - Protecting an Elderly Loved One

Elderly parents living on their own or in nursing homes may become prey for unscrupulous neighbors, family members, or attendants. In order to protect their assets and real property from theft, transferring powers of attorney may be necessary. Our attorneys assist adult children of elderly parents in establishing guardianships and conservatorships which allow you to monitor and manage the financial and legal affairs of elderly loved ones who are no longer capable of doing so themselves.
