What Should I Know About A Living Will?

A living will outlines your wishes regarding medical treatment if you become unable to communicate those decisions yourself. It is a proactive step that ensures your loved ones and doctors understand how best to care for you during critical times. Opting for a living will can provide peace of mind to both you and your loved ones, as it clearly states your health care choices and alleviates the burden of decision-making during stressful situations. Our estate planning attorneys can guide you through creating a living will that speaks with your voice when you cannot.

Why Have A Health Care Power Of Attorney And Advance Directive?

A health care power of attorney names someone you trust to make decisions regarding your medical treatment if you lose your capacity. This role is crucial and places someone who understands your values and desires in charge of overseeing your care. An advance directive, often encompassing both a living will and a medical power of attorney, sets the course for future health care and can include specific instructions for various medical situations. Our lawyers are committed to ensuring your health care directives are clear, legally sound and ready when needed. With our extensive experience and meticulous approach, we stand ready to assist you in safeguarding your autonomy and well-being.
