Nobody likes to think about a time when they won't be able to make their own decisions, but it can help to be prepared. Incapacity can happen at any time and come completely out of the blue from a serious accident or stroke, to a long-term illness.
That is why it is so important that everyone has a Power of Attorney, as well as a Will, in place. A Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows someone to make decisions for you, or act on your behalf, if you’re no longer able to or if you no longer want to make your own decisions.
Macnabs, a leading law firm in Perthshire, has raised almost £5000 for charity this year after taking part in a will-writing campaign where lawyers generously give up their time for free to write Wills for local people in exchange for a donation.
Macnabs has taken part in the annual Will Aid scheme for 7 years now and raised an impressive total of £37,561 to date.
Macnabs are delighted to announce that Sarah Mitchell, a solicitor in the Private Client and Property Departments, has recently been awarded a Worldwide Excellence Award from STEP. STEP is the global professional association for practitioners who specialise in family inheritance and succession planning and these awards celebrate the top scoring student at distinction level across all STEP exams globally.
