We are specialists in dealing with Lasting Powers of Attorney which are legal documents where a person gives another person or persons (the Attorneys) power to sign and conduct legal formalities and make other decisions on their behalf. This allows your Attorney to make welfare and healthcare decisions on your behalf when you no longer have the mental capacity to do so yourself. If you wish this could include giving or refusing consent to life sustaining treatment in certain circumstances. A Lasting Power of Attorney is an important document and you should take great care in choosing your Attorneys.

No-one likes to think about their own death, and this is why most people don't make a will. As a result many people die every year without a Will and the estate either goes to distant relatives who are legally the next of kin or, in some cases to the Crown. B J McKenna are specialists in wills & probate law in Stockport, South Manchester & East Cheshire - and we can help. Those you leave behind may also find administering your affairs much harder and end up paying more inheritance tax. It's especially important that you make a will if you have young children, a handicapped spouse, you are separated or divorced, or you have an unmarried partner.
