Who Decides If You Can't?

Recent changes in the law mean that it is now possible to make better provision for a time when you may need someone to make decisions for you.

The new Lasting Powers of Attorney replace the old Enduring Powers, and are able to be more finely-tuned to your own requirements.

Whether you want to give someone power to deal with your property and affairs, or whether you would like a family member to make decisions about your medical treatment and health care, BOBBETTS MACKAN can help make sure that your wishes are carried out - even if you are unable to.
