Advance Health Care Directive and Durable Power of Attorney

A comprehensive estate plan is not limited to trusts and wills that provide for the transfer of assets after death. Thoughtful estate planning includes provisions for minor children, and a clear expression of a person's wishes regarding medical treatment to be given in the event that a patient cannot clearly state his or her wishes.

At the Law Offices of H. Michael Soroy, we can help you get an appropriate advance health care directive and a durable power of attorney in place. Give us a call today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your specific needs.

We offer fixed-rate estate planning that includes the discussion and preparation of testamentary instruments, including wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney and advance health care directives (AHCD). In the event that you are incapacitated, the durable power of attorney will allow your designated representative to act on your behalf in financial affairs, whereas the AHCD appoints an agent to grant consent in medical treatment matters during your incapacity and also includes a so-called living will provision in the event you do not wish to be kept alive by artificial means.

Our estate planning services include ample time for explanation of the purposes, features and means of implementation of AHCD and durable powers of attorney. In our practice, we are known for our personal approach toward each client. We give every client our undivided attention, and respond quickly and thoroughly to requests for information or advice.

It is important to make your own decisions regarding health care and management of your financial affairs. We can help you do this with full awareness of the meaning and consequences of the testamentary documents that you create.
