Powers Of Attorney
A general, durable, medical or financial power of attorney is a valuable addition to any estate plan. When combined with a simple or complex will, revocable or irrevocable trust, health care directive and asset protection strategies designed to fit your future needs, the solid estate plan that results can ensure financial security for your Arkansas family for many years to come.
At the McMullan & Brown law firm in Little Rock, experienced estate planning attorney Amy Clemmons Brown can explain your powers of attorney options to you. She educates, advocates and delivers personal service that makes you feel special.
Generally, a power of attorney puts you in charge of how you’re cared for, in the event of a serious accident or incapacitation, and the possibility that you would be unable to make important legal and financial decisions for yourself. This is what the power of attorney, and estate planning as a whole, is all about — preparation for both the expected and unexpected.

As your lawyer, Amy Clemmons Brown understands your goals, documents your plan according to your explicit wishes and offers leadership that gives you hope, strength and peace of mind.
Where powers of attorney are concerned, Amy clearly outlines the differences in the state’s three major categories, which are:
- A durable power of attorney, which is effective immediately, legally allows your “agent” the power of decision-making if you are incapacitated.
- A financial power of attorney permits someone you trust to make financial decisions for you, on matters like payment of bills, management of investments and sale or purchase of property.
- A medical power of attorney means that someone is entitled to make decisions about your health care, in fields such as hospitalization, doctor-patient communications and access to medical records.
