What would happen if age, illness or an accident meant you were no longer capable of looking after your own affairs? By preparing in advance, we can help you to make sure your family don’t face a difficult and complex time sorting out the legal authority to act on your behalf.
From the first time we meet we’ll take the time to really get to know you, so that we understand the intricacies of what you need. We offer you clear, legal advice from experts in each field of law so that you can make the best decision for you. We put you first. We listen. And offer you a personal service that you can depend on.How We Work
We believe there is no substitute for personal, one-to-one advice and we value the long-term relationships that we build with our clients.
At Boyce Hatton, we recommend that everyone create a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA). It gives the person(s) acting as your attorney the legal authority to make decisions about your personal welfare, property and finances if you’re unable to.
Planning for the future not only presents you with peace of mind, it helps to make clear decisions about the choices that effect you and those closest to you.
We have specialist lawyers in the team who are qualified to work with the elderly and work closely with agencies dealing with dementia. This means we always work in a way that is sensitive and respectful to the nature of this kind of planning.
Who can receive Lasting Powers of Attorney?
You can choose whoever you think would be best to act on your behalf in either a Personal Welfare LPA or a Property and Financial Affairs LPA.
This could be a spouse, trusted business partner, friend. Or, if you would be more comfortable giving this authority to someone removed from the situation, we’re happy to act for you.
