Power of Attorney

Notarizing a Power of Attorney adds an extra layer of authentication to the document, making it more likely to be accepted by third parties, such as financial institutions or government agencies. This verification process helps prevent fraud and ensures that the person granting power (the principal) is doing so willingly and with a clear understanding of the document's implications.

Ackowledgements & Jurats


Acknowledgments involve a person confirming, before a notary public, that they voluntarily signed a document. The notary verifies their identity and certifies the acknowledgment, adding credibility to the document.


In a jurat, a person signs a document before a notary, swearing that its contents are true. The notary certifies the oath, making the document legally binding and credible.

Witnessing & I.D Verification

Verification of Identity: The notary verifies the identity of the person signing the Power of Attorney. This often involves presenting government-issued identification.

Witnessing the Signature: The notary witnesses the signing of the Power of Attorney. This involves observing the individual physically sign the document.

Advanced Health Care Directives & Medical Consent Forms

Advance Healthcare Directives: These documents, also known as living wills or medical powers of attorney, specify your preferences for medical treatment and appoint someone to make healthcare decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so.

Medical Consent Forms: Notarization might be required for medical consent forms, especially in situations involving minors or individuals unable to provide consent.

Notary History

Thomas McKean, the final signatory of the Declaration of Independence, held the esteemed position of a sworn Notary of Public. He was singularly appointed as the exclusive Notary for the entire South Delaware region.

On the historic night of August 3, 1923, Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President, achieved a unique milestone as he was administered the Oath of Office by a Notary Public. Notably, this unprecedented event took place by the soft glow of kerosene light at the early hour of 2:47 am

Tiro, a Roman slave and secretary to Cicero, is recognized as the first Notary for creating the Notae shorthand system. His innovative approach revolutionized the transcription of Cicero's speeches, shaping the evolution of Notary of Public services we use today.


I recently had Portland Public Notary come to my home for document notarization, and it was a game-changer! The notary was friendly, professional, and made the whole process a breeze. Being able to get things done at my own place was incredibly convenient. I highly recommend their mobile notary services for anyone looking for a quick, reliable, and personable experience.
