Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) allows you to appoint a trusted person (attorney), who is able to make decisions for you if you’re unable to do so. Often due to illness, aging or other circumstances that have affected your mental capacity.

People arrange LPA’s to safeguard their future. Bringing peace of mind, knowing that regardless of what life brings, a reliable person is in your corner aligned with your preferences.
