Health Care Proxies and Health Care Directives

With a health care proxy, you appoint an agent to make decisions for you regarding your care and treatment. A health care directive, also known as a living will, can allow you to outline your wishes for your doctor, health care agent, loved ones and medical professionals. These tools are not mutually exclusive, and both can be used in order to ensure that your wishes are met.

When you work with our legal team, you can expect dedicated service, personal attention, and tailored answers to your questions regarding your estate plan and your health care concerns. Our attorneys will speak at length with you about your wishes for the future, including:

  • Resuscitation and do not resuscitate orders
  • Use of medical machinery and life support systems
  • Treatment if you are in a coma, a vegetative state or have a serious brain injury
  • Use of pain medication
