Lasting Powers of Attorney, Living Wills & Deputies

At Jacobs & Reeves Solicitors we have a specialist team that can assist you in appointing a trusted power of attorney to help you manage your financial affairs and personal welfare. Whether this is for the here and now or to cover future circumstances that make you unable to deal with your own affairs, we can help you make suitable arrangements.

For those loved ones who unfortunately can no longer choose an attorney by themselves we can help you apply to the court to be appointed as their deputy, enabling you to sort out their financial affairs and personal welfare as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Have you thought about your own future circumstances? What would you want to happen if you became so ill that a decision had to be made as to whether you are resuscitated or perhaps kept alive by life support systems when the resulting quality of life is likely to be very poor? These are difficult situations to plan for but we are here to take you through the options and help put in place the right documentation to meet with your wishes.
