A Client-Centered Law Practice

Preparing For Illness Or Injury

Despite our best efforts to stay healthy, sudden illness or injury can strike at any time, and incapacitate us as a result. When you are unable to act on your own behalf in such a situation, your loved ones will have questions about your wishes. With the help of proper incapacity planning, you can answer those questions ahead of time.

At Hermiz & Associates, we help clients across Michigan with their estate planning needs. From our Southfield office, we do everything in our power to protect the last wishes of our clients, and we are ready to help you through your estate planning needs as well. Many people may be surprised to learn how estate planning can help them while they are still alive, and we can show you what the benefits are.

How Incapacity Planning Can Benefit You

By acting before tragedy can strike, you can make important decisions that may otherwise burden your loved ones. For example, we can help you with planning that accounts for your needs with measures including:

  • Health care directives to specify what your medical wishes are such as, what procedures you would consent to if you wish to be an organ donor, and when you want to be taken off life support.
  • Developing a revocable trust that allows you to control the contents of your trust. This kind of trust allows you to make changes as necessary to ensure your assets go to the proper beneficiaries.
  • Appointing a power of attorney to act on your behalf when you cannot act for yourself. By choosing someone you trust to act as your power of attorney, you can have peace of mind knowing that someone is protecting your best interests.

We take the time to work closely with our clients to determine what their unique needs are before developing a custom-tailored estate planning strategy that reflects your specific needs.
