Uniform Power of Attorney Highlighted in Newly Revised Orange Book Handbook

The Sixth Edition of the Colorado Estate Planning Handbook (Orange Book Handbook) was released last month and provides practitioners with a treatise on a vast collection of legal topics. The completely revised edition was reviewed and updated to conform with Colorado law through 2010 and is directed toward intermediate and advanced level practitioners. The Handbook is designed to be used in conjunction with Colorado Estate Planning Forms (Orange Book Forms), also published by CBA-CLE.

The newly revised edition also includes seven new chapters, including one centered on powers of attorney, written by Tom Rodriguez. In 2009, Colorado adopted the Uniform Power of Attorney Act; this chapter provides an overview of the Financial and Medical Powers of Attorney and the implications of the new act.

Provided below is the newly revised Power of Attorney form that complies with the new act, as featured in the Orange Book.
