Power of Attorney

A power of attorney is a legal document you (the “principal”) can use to appoint another person (the “agent”) to make decisions on your behalf. The requirements for a valid Power of Attorney include:

  • The person making the power of attorney (principal) must be mentally competent and under no undue influence such as coercion or duress
  • The power of attorney must be signed in the presence of a notary and include the signatures of two witnesses

The delegations of authority in a power of attorney can be as broad or as narrow as the principal wants it to be, within the limits of the law.

A power of attorney can be revoked by the principal at any time; otherwise, the power of attorney will terminate at death (of the principal).

Hiring Jennifer Dane as my divorce attorney was one of the best decisions I’ve made – second only to deciding to get the divorce in the first place! Jennifer was professional, kind, and available. Even after the divorce was final, she continued to help me tie up some loose ends. I highly recommend her for any legal issue.
