Abstract

This Article considers the concept of empowerment and the obligation lawyers have as they advise and counsel their clients, especially the elderly, in the use of estate planning documents which empower others to undertake responsibility on the client's behalf. The article proposes the lawyer achieve the "good result" for the client as a means of fulfilling that responsibility, applying it in the use of the durable power of attorney, advance directive, and psychiatric advance directive.
