What are Health Care Directives?
Simply put, health care directives, often referred to as a living will, is the most powerful legal tool to ensure that your family respects your final wishes regarding medical care at the end of your life. A living will is also the best way to remove the emotional burden on a loved one who has to make tough decisions in the event that you become incapacitated. Not knowing what you would have chosen for yourself can leave your spouse and children with a lifetime of guilt and worry.
It is never too early to give your family the gift of a living will, in the event of an accident or unexpected illness. Morris Hall, PLLC, has the expertise necessary to make sure that your intentions are clearly understood, removing room for ambiguity, which often leads to family disputes and litigation. As members of the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys (AAEPA), our legal team is able to provide documents that are clearly written, easy to understand and legally binding.
