Attorney Specializing in Durable Powers of Attorney in Israel
Professional Excellence, Personal Service
A Durable Power of Attorney (“DPOA") is a powerful tool that enables family members to care for you once you can no longer care for yourself. It enables your family to continue functioning naturally, without involving the courts, and it enables you to preserve your dignity and wishes.
A DPOA will authorize your family members to handle your MEDICAL, FINANCIAL, and other PERSONAL matters - according to your predetermined instructions and without the involvement of the courts. Without a DPOA, your family members will be forced to apply to the courts to be appointed as a custodian (“אפוטרופוס”) and your family members will have to continuously report to the courts and the Guardian General.
