Powers of Attorney

Powers of Attorney in Your Baton Rouge Estate Plan

What Happens if You Aren't Capable of Making Financial Decisions?

It is an unfortunate, yet very real fact of life that you may not always have the mental capacity necessary to handle your own finances. Whether through a sudden, serious accident or a disease that affects your mental capacity as you age, there are many situations that can prevent you from being able to manage your own affairs. If this were to happen to you, who would make financial decisions on your behalf? Putting a power of attorney in place ensures that you choose who will speak financially.

Benefits of a Power of Attorney

While this is an uncomfortable scenario for people to think about, it is extremely important to do so, as you may have specific preferences related to your finances.

Our Satisfied Clients

  • “Siobhan and her team were wonderful to work with!”
    Siobhan and her team were wonderful to work with! They were quick to help me prepare for some estate planning needs that very suddenly became necessary. Estate planning can feel very overwhelming, but Siobhan was able to guide me through the process, so I was able to make informed decisions for the future. It is a relief to have a plan in place for my children's needs if something unexpectedly happens to me.

  • “Siobhan Leger and her team are fantastic.”
    Siobhan Leger and her team are fantastic. They way they helped me and my wife navigate the very daunting and emotionally charged landscape of our wills, our estate planning, and, most importantly, the custody arrangements for our two young kids (in the event of our death). It's brutal worst case scenario stuff but Siobhan was patient, understanding, and incredibly knowledgeable as we together went line by line getting all our ducks in a row. Now that it's taken care of, I can rest easy knowing my kids will taken care of if I die. Thank you, Leger Law Group.
