Power of Attorney
Power of Attorney in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa, Sarasota and surrounding West Florida areas.
Generally, a Power of Attorney is a written document executed by a “principal” that designates a person to act as an attorney-in-fact, or an “agent,” and is authorized to perform certain actions on behalf of the principal during the principal’s life. In the event of the principal’s death, a Power of Attorney becomes invalid. The most common type of Powers of Attorney is the Durable Power of Attorney, which remains legally valid if the principal becomes incapacitated as long as it was executed in accordance with Florida law.
