Advance Health Care Directives and Powers of Attorney

We are pleased to assist clients with advance health care directives and powers of attorney. An advance health care directive, formerly called a living will, is a document that defines your medical care wishes. It states your wishes concerning vital issues like removal of life support, organ donations and burial instructions.

A power of attorney grants a person of your choice the power to handle important financial decisions on your behalf, if you become ill or disabled. Powers of attorney and advance health care directives are key tools used in preparing your estate plan.
