Seventy-five percent (75%) of people die without having a will which states how they want their property to be distributed.  
Worse, those people don't prepare the documents to provide care for themselves while they are disabled and unable to make decisions.

Attorney Sheila O'Connor Allen will draft and provide, at her office or your location, those documents necessary to protect you: A Will, a Durable Power of Attorney (aka a Financial Power of Attorney), a Medical Power of Attorney, a Declaration of Guardianship to ensure you are protected and cared for during difficult times in your life, when you are unable to make decisions, and burial instructions/authority. (These documents are protection for you, your loved ones, and your property - together, they are  a very economical form of protection for yourself, while incapacitated, and for the care and distribution of your property.)

Additionally, an Advance Directive (aka Living Will), and a HIPAA release offer instructions to loved ones regarding your medical information access, decisions, visitors and care.

At times, it is necessary to seek a Guardianship of the Person and/or Guardianship of the Estate, either partial or full, in order to better care for our incapacitated loved ones.     
 Sheila Allen always tries to achieve the least restrictive alternatives to Guardianship.

Attorney Sheila O'Connor Allen, as a Professional Guardian (certification #G-11-0377),  can guide you through the Guardianship process, by filing the appropriate documents, communicating with medical personnel for the required evaluations, and she will represent you in Court in order to obtain Guardianship for your loved one, when it becomes necessary.

​Guardianships can be expensive, as they are court/attorney intensive (they require annual reports and impose a fiduciary duty on the part of the Guardian.) They, normally, supersede  (replace) the rights given in a Durable Power of Attorney and a Medical Power of Attorney; the court-appointed Guardian of the Estate and Guardian of the Person makes the decisions.
