The attorneys at Robinson and Henry work with you to establish durable power of attorney.

Having power of attorney documents in place will give you and your loved ones peace of mind now and especially later, at a time of personal stress and emotional upheaval.
Advanced Directives and Living Wills
Few things in life are more troubling than seeing a person wasting away on hospital life support because there were no advanced directives or living will specifying how the individual should be treated in a catastrophic medical situation. In the absence of advanced directives, you are entirely at the mercy of family members desires. Too often, physicians stand by as an adult child struggles to decide whether to continue life support for a beloved parent who has suffered silently for weeks. If only the parent had made his wishes known through a living will. He could have gone peacefully and his child could have let go of the worry and guilt that so often accompanies any decision made without expressed directives.
The attorneys at Robinson & Henry can help assure that no one in your family has to endure this heart-wrenching situation. Our attorneys will sit down with you and discuss your preferences for your care should the time ever come when you are not able to speak for yourself and direct your own care. Then, based on your ideas and beliefs, we will create a living will that lets caregivers and family know exactly how your care should be handled in the event of a catastrophic situation.
When a loved one dies, the emotional upheaval of your loss should be enough to face. Having to deal with probate court and the dispersion of your loved one’s assets can seem almost intolerable. Furthermore, when you are struggling under the weight of grief is not the best time to have to square off with contentious relatives and other claimants to receive what should be yours. The attorneys at Robinson & Henry are sensitive to your feelings and situation. They bring all their years of experience with wills, estate law, negotiations, and probate court to bear protecting your interests during the probate process.
