Wills, Trusts, and Advance Medical Directives

When individuals are contemplating end of life decisions, the probate lawyers at Avallone Law Associates are able to counsel and assist in the preparation of wills, trusts, and guardianships.

In addition, they can help determine if advance medical directives, also known as living wills, should be utilized and will help in the drafting of these documents. Advance medical directives, also known as medical powers of attorney, medical proxy, or do not resuscitate orders are created to determine how your health decisions should be handled in the event that you become incapacitated while still alive. Moreover, the attorneys aid in drafting durable powers of attorney to ensure that your financial situation are managed properly in the event of incapacitation. Many individuals create these documents before surgery or as they age.
