Draft An Advance Directive To Express Your Wishes

There may come a point in life where you or a loved one is not able to communicate personal wishes related to medical care. In these cases, having an advance directive as part of an estate plan can provide clarity for doctors and family members.

At Wolfson & Bernazzani, PLLC, our estate planning attorneys have more than two decades of experience and are prepared to help you establish an advance directive that meets your personal health care needs and goals. By taking the time to understand our clients' needs, we can help you address all issues of incapacitation in a way that aligns with your wishes and beliefs.

Clearly Communicate Your Wishes During A Stressful Time

During stressful health events and emergencies, advance directives provide loved ones clarity and peace of mind. These components of an estate plan allow someone to designate a family member or another person to make medical decisions on their behalf in the event that they are incapacitated, including:

  • Instructions regarding life-saving measures, including resuscitation
  • Life-prolonging measures, including feeding tubes and life support machines
  • Wishes regarding an individual's choice to be an organ and/or tissue donor

Without an advance directive, family members or those close to you may not be certain how to address medical decisions, which is when painful, emotional disputes can arise. These disputes can lead to litigation and strained relations among family members. Our lawyers can draft an advance directive that leaves you in charge of your health care decision-making process.
