You can ensure that your end-of-life care is handled the way you want it to be handled by putting your preferences in writing using Advance Directives. Our attorneys can work with you to create a Funeral Planning Directive to let your loved ones know about specific funeral wishes – everything from whether you want a funeral or memorial service, the size of the gathering and location, and whether you wish to be cremated or prefer a traditional burial.
A Durable Power of Attorney is someone that you designate to manage your financial affairs if you become incapacitated. There is also a Durable Power of Attorney for health care which allows someone to make medical decisions for you if you are no longer able to speak for yourself.
We can help you with preparing these two documents, along with a health care directive (Living Will). A Living Will lays out your wishes for medical care and treatment, and ensures that your health and financial matters will stay in the hands of people you trust.
Our attorneys offer Guardianship legal advice and representation. We represent people who want to become guardians of a parent, minor, or adult disabled child. After the Guardianship has been established through the Court, we also assist you with establishing fiduciary accounts and accountings.
