Living Will

Living Will – This document does not control the disposition of your assets. 

A Living Will directs that life prolonging procedures be withheld or withdrawn should you ever be diagnosed with a terminal or end stage condition.

A living will is a statement expressing your wishes concerning the level of treatment, if any, you would desire to have administered to you in the event that you ever suffer from a terminal or "end stage" illness and will be honored if you are unable to make decisions on your own. 

It is the recommendation of our law firm that you include the designation of a Health Care Surrogate within your Living Will to serve as an advocate on your behalf and to enforce your wishes when needed.

It is also important that you provide your each of your physicians with copies of your Living Will, as well as provide either originals or copies to each of the Surrogates you name to act on your behalf. Unlike your other legal documents, you should keep your Living Will at home, and not in a safe deposit box, so that it may be easily retrieved when needed.
