My brother has a business and he says he wants to give me power of attorney over his business until he gets better. Do I need a lawyer for that or is that something that I can type up on my own.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Texas

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

None... I dont even know 100 % what a power of attorney is exactly

Welcome to JA and thank you for your question. I will be the Attorney that will be assisting you. There are forms of Powers of Attorney that would give you very broad powers to act on behalf of your brother in running his business. I can provide samples for you. My concern for you would be to make sure that you do not become personally liable for acting on his behalf. Let me provide some forms and we can discuss them.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
