Lawyers for Powers of Attorney serving Toronto and the surrounding area

When assisting our clients with estate planning, we stress the importance of planning for incapacity. It is crucial to consider the possibility of circumstances, such as a car accident or sudden illness, that leave an individual in a position where they are unable to make their wishes known or to make decisions concerning themselves or their property. With these types of unforeseen scenarios in mind, we offer the following solutions:

  • Powers of attorney for care and personal needs
  • Powers of attorney for property, to manage financial or business affairs

Powers of attorney, both for care and for property, are invaluable in situations where capacity is lost. Having these documents in place when the unthinkable happens ensures a smooth transition for the individual’s loved ones to arrange for their care and other needs, and eliminates a significant amount of stress in an already trying circumstance.

The experienced lawyers at Mills & Mills LLP work closely with our clients to draft these documents with all relevant considerations in mind. When and if the time comes, we assist loved ones with administration, helping them to carry out their duties and advising them where necessary.

Whether owing to capacity disputes or other factors, it sometimes becomes necessary to challenge the validity of existing documents. Should the need arise, we are able to assist clients in this regard as well.
