Drafting a Power of Attorney in New York: Ensure Your Wishes Are Respected

A Power of Attorney (POA) is an essential legal document that grants another person the authority to act on your behalf in various matters, including financial, legal, and health-related decisions, while you are alive. Our law firm specializes in crafting POA documents that are compliant with New York laws, ensuring that your interests are protected and your wishes are clearly articulated.

Our law firm has thousands of testimonials. Below are just a few:

“Mr. Ronald S. Cook is the best lawyer that I have worked with. He is absolutely fantastic. The quality of the service is second to none. He is just at a different level. I am extremely satisfied from his services. Mr. Cook under-promises and over-delivers. I strongly recommend his advice and services.”

“Attorney Cook helped me update my Estate Plan when I relocated back to Long Island from Los Angeles. His assistance was critical since the laws in New York State are significantly different than those in California. He took the amount of time necessary for me to understand most of the intricacies of NY estate planning law, and as a retired engineer, I look to understand pretty much everything there is to know before I put my signature on paper. My customized plan was done well and in a very timely manner. I plan to use his services for any and all future needs where he is experienced. I would recommend anyone to speak to him about your estate planning needs.”

“Ronald Cook helped us with our Estate Planning needs. We had spoken to a few attorneys concerning our Estate needs over the years, but Mr. Cook will be the last. My wife and I were impressed by his willingness to take the time to explain in layman terms all our options. He customized our legal documents to reflect our specific needs and desires. His is not a cookie cutter approach and we highly recommend him.”
