Not Just a Facelift: The Amended Illinois Power of Attorney

The January 2015 edition of the DCBA Brief includes an article authored by Huck Bouma attorney Katie May entitled, Not Just a Facelift: The Amended Illinois Power of Attorney. The article explores some of the recent changes to the Illinois Power of Attorney Act which amends the Power of Attorney for Health Care, as well as provides a few practical pointers for practitioners to consider in drafting a Power of Attorney for Health Care. The changes in the Illinois Power of Attorney Act do not affect the Power of Attorney for Property.
