Estate Planning Tools in AZ: Powers of Attorney

Life is unpredictable, and there may be times when you are unable to handle your financial matters or medical decisions personally. That’s where our power of attorney services come into play. By designating a trusted individual to act on your behalf while you are traveling internationally, facing medical challenges, or are otherwise unable to tend to your affairs, you can have peace of mind knowing that your financial affairs are in capable hands. Desert Rose Estate and Elder Law can assist you in establishing comprehensive medical and financial POAs that meet your needs.

The Role of Trusts in AZ Estate Planning

When it comes to estate planning, revocable and irrevocable trusts are powerful tools that can help you protect and manage your assets. Experienced Phoenix estate planning attorneys can guide their clients through the intricacies of these trust options, help them determine which form of trust is right for them, and draft and execute the necessary legal documents.

Revocable trusts, also known as living trusts, offer flexibility and control. They allow you to retain ownership and make changes to the trust during your lifetime. On the other hand, irrevocable trusts provide heightened asset protection, but they cannot be altered or revoked once established.

At Desert Rose Estate and Elder Law, we can help you evaluate whether and how a trust might work for you. We provide legal counsel to help you make smart, informed decisions that best suit your needs.
