2016 Free Power of Attorney Advice


An opportunity to meet individually with an Ozaukee County Bar Association Attorney to create your personalized Power of Attorney for Health Care

Why complete Power of Attorney (POA) documents?
*POAs allow YOU to choose the individual you would want to make decisions for you in the event that you are unable to make them for yourself. If incapacity occurs and you are without one, it will likely be necessary for your family or others to ask the Court to appoint a guardian—a process that can be costly, time-consuming and cumbersome.

Attorneys from the Ozaukee County Bar Association will be available to meet individually with county residents to assist them in completing their Power of Attorney for Health Care.  Documents and assistance will be provided free of charge.

            Completing a Power of Attorney allows a person to choose the individual he/she would want to make medical decisions in the event that the person is unable to make them for him/herself.  In Wisconsin, spouses and children do not automatically have this authority.  Completed Power of Attorney documents can help families avoid costly and time-consuming court proceedings.

              Appointments are open to anyone age 55 and older, as well as to persons with a disability determination.  Appointments scheduled on the ½ hour.  Contact Ozaukee County Human Services at 262-284-8200 (metro: 262-238-8200).
