A Power of Attorney is a document that grants someone else (called the Attorney-in-fact) the power
to act on your behalf on matters that you specify. A power of attorney allows your attorney-in-fact to
do anything you (the Principal) can do yourself, with a few exceptions—such as areas where you
possess specialized skills that your attorney-in-fact does not (for example, if you are a dentist, you
cannot authorize your attorney-in-fact to practice dentistry on your behalf). Typically, however, a
power of attorney is used to grant the attorney-in-fact decision making power over your financial and property matters. You may place limitations on what your attorney-in-fact may or may not do
when creating a power of attorney.
