Staff Notes - Peace of Mind

I have friends and neighbors who say this to me often. I'm like you, a non-attorney, and I understand saving money like you do, so it's a good question. But here is my non-attorney take on the situation. Let's take the hypothetical need for a power of attorney, or POA, form. You could take the seemingly easy route, buy a DIY form from Staples or Office Depot, and fill in the blanks. Viola! You've spent $10-$20 and have what you need. Or do you? A POA gives someone else the power to do things like withdraw funds from your bank accounts and even sell real estate on your behalf.
