Powers of Attorney in Thornton
Despite what some individuals throughout Colorado believe, a power of attorney (POA) has nothing to do with being an attorney or having a law degree, except that involving an attorney in the process is critical to ensure that your documents are drafted adequately and accomplish your goals correctly. A power of attorney is a document that allows you (the principal) to give power to another person (the agent) to act on your behalf.
