Living Will Lawyer
Although the use of the term “will” sometimes causes a living will to be confused with one’s last will and testament, a living will is actually a medical advance directive which indicates, in advance, what medical treatment will be provided under a given scenario. Living wills serve a purpose similar to that of a medical power of attorney. However, there are major differences between a living will and a medical power of attorney. In the initial, risk-free consultation, our living will lawyers will discuss the differences so that you can make an informed choice.
Having an experienced living will attorney in your corner ensures that your wishes will be followed regarding specific medical treatment that you will or will not accept.
