Advanced Directives: Make Your Wishes Known
Antonoplos & Associates estate planning attorneys assist clients throughout Washington D.C. and Maryland with their Advanced Directives. Whether it is the preparation of a Durable General Power of Attorney, Limited Power of Attorney, Healthcare Power of Attorney, Living Will, Medical Visitation Directive or HIPAA Waiver, or other Advanced Directive, our team of estate planning attorneys has the experience and knowledge to properly guide you through which advanced directives are appropriate for you.
Antonoplos & Associates estate planning attorneys will help ensure that our clients living wills and other advance directives are clearly written, legally enforceable instructions regarding our clients preferences for medical care in the event that they are unable to make decisions for themselves. Our proprietary advance directives clearly set out our clients choices for doctors and caregivers in the event that our clients are terminally ill, seriously injured, in a coma, in the late stages of dementia or near the end of life.
Plan Ahead To Avoid Confusion
We strongly recommend that our clients plan ahead with the preparation of advanced directives. You can get the medical care you want, avoid unnecessary suffering and relieve caregivers of decisionmaking burdens during moments of crisis or grief. You also help reduce confusion or disagreement about the choices you would want people to make on your behalf.
Remember advance directives aren’t just for older individuals. Unexpected endoflife situations can happen at any age, so it’s important for all individuals to prepare these documents. We recommend that anyone over the age of 18 have proper advanced directives in place.
