Advance Directives Can Help You Prepare for the Unexpected
You may have planned ahead by creating a will so your loved ones will know how you would like your assets distributed in the future. Unfortunately, this proactive measure may not be enough. An unexpected situation such as a car accident or another life-threatening situation could happen at any time. Without proper planning, your family could be left to make extremely difficult decisions on your behalf if you become unable to communicate your thoughts.

An Advance Directive Can Define Your Medical Treatment Preferences

A living will, or physician’s directive, is a document that defines how you would like to be treated if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness.
An advance health care directive like this one can be used to define your wishes regarding life support, including how long you would want to be on life support. We develop customized plans to help clients document their wishes based on a wide range of scenarios. We generally help clients establish advance directives and powers of attorney as part of our comprehensive portfolio of estate planning services.
