Every year, thousands of medical, financial, and legal issues crop up due to the confusion surrounding the specific directions of an individual incapable of making the necessary decisions about their estate, body, or finances. The same problems can arise for small businesses and, for that reason, understanding what power of attorney entails, and how you go about establishing it, is a vital step. This guide helps you cut away the confusing red tape and finally understand exactly what power of attorney involves and how you can use it to your advantage.

The first thing you will learn is the various forms of power of attorney that are available to you, including for financial purposes, medical and health care purposes, living wills, childcare, and all-in-one purposes. The details of what an agent can supply in each instance will be provided to help you understand what each specific style of power of attorney will provide. The process of choosing your agent will be outlined in detail for you, including who is applicable and what important factors should be included in every discussion related to who your power of attorney will be.

You will learn how to select a lawyer and whether you will be able to afford one in certain instances. You will be able to see what is involved in working with a lawyer and what you need to do if you decide to fire that particular lawyer. The federal laws and then the specific state laws that apply to your situation will be provided with details about how you can further research them to know how they apply to even more specific situations. For those seeking financial powers of attorney, you will learn how to limit the power of attorney, how that power applies to real estate, and how to acquire and use an affidavit of attorney in fact.

For those with health care related issues, you will learn how a durable power of attorney operates for health care, how to choose someone to make medical treatment decisions, the creation and application of a living will, the specific presentation of a do not resuscitate order, and how to determine the distribution of anatomical gifts. Finally, issues such as child care and the revocation of a power of attorney will be discussed. With the assistance of dozens of interviews across multiple different fields with experts in law, family, and business applications of a power of attorney, you will be provided with an extensive overview of everything you need to know to effectively utilize this highly valuable legal tool. This book is the essential tool every small business or individual with need of a power of attorney needs.

The Best Edition of this Classic History: A Comprehensive Legal History of England from the Anglo-Saxon Period through the 19th Century. Theodore Frank Thomas Plucknett [1897-1965] received his LL.B. from the University of Cambridge in 1920. He was a Fellow of the British Academy, Professor of Legal History, University of London, and Assistant Professor of Legal History at Harvard University. He was also the author of Early English Legal Literature (1958) and Edward I and Criminal Law (1960). "Professor Plucknett has such a solid reputation on both sides of the Atlantic that one expects from his pen only what is scholarly and accurate... Nor is the expectation likely to be disappointed in this book. Plucknett's book is not...a mere epitome of what is to be found elsewhere. He has explored on his own account many regions of legal history and, even where the ground has been already quartered, he has fresh methods of mapping it. The title which he has chosen is, in view of the contents of the volume, rather a narrow one. It might equally well have been A Concise History of English Law... In conjunction with Readings on the History and System of the Common Law by Dean Pound...this book will give an excellent grounding to the student of English legal history." --Percy H. Winfield. Harvard Law Review 43 (1929-30) 339-340. "[T]his book, comprehensive yet not elementary, clear yet inviting further study on the part of the reader, remains an excellent introduction to legal history and the study of law."-- Harvard Law Review 50 (1937-38) 1012.

"The following sheets contain the substance of a course of lectures on the laws of England, which were read by the author in the university of OXFORD. His original plan took it's rise in the year 1753: and, notwithstanding the novelty of such an attempt in this age and country, and the prejudices usually conceived against any innovations in the established mode of education, he had the satisfaction to find (and he acknowledges it with a mixture of pride and gratitude) that his endeavours were encouraged and patronized by those, both in the university and out of it, whose good opinion and esteem he was principally desirous to obtain." According to Wikipedia: "Sir William Blackstone (10 July 1723 – 14 February 1780) was an English judge, jurist and professor who produced the historical and analytic treatise on the common law entitled Commentaries on the Laws of England, first published in four volumes over 1765–1769. It had an extraordinary success, reportedly bringing the author £14,000, and still remains an important source on classical views of the common law and its principles... Leading American attorneys who first learned their law by reading Blackstone include Alexander Hamilton and Abraham Lincoln... Blackstone and his work occasionally appear in literature. For example, Blackstone receives mention in Herman Melville's Moby-Dick...A bust of Blackstone is a typical ornament of a lawyer's office in early Perry Mason novels, and in Anatomy of a Murder. Blackstone's Commentaries are also mentioned in Charles Portis's comic novel, The Dog of the South. It is also mentioned in Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird as the tool used to teach Calpurnia, a black woman, how to read. Blackstone wrote his books on common law shortly before the United States Constitution was written. Many terms and phrases, particularly the term Pursuit of Happiness, used by the framers were derived from Blackstone's works."
