Planning for Incapacity or Disability
Estate planning involves more than simply passing your property on after you are gone. It also serves the purpose of managing your estate in the event of incapacitation. Don’t let a tragedy or illness find you unprepared. To carry out your wishes, our attorneys draft health care directives, living wills, and financial powers of attorney. In the event of disability or incapacitation, such tools allow for the proper management of your estate.
Don’t make the mistake of preparing half an estate plan. Statistics show that as our population ages, the challenges of aging will make issues of incapacity more and more important. Physical infirmity and challenges of memory related illness can leave a family in limbo for years trying to manage the payment of bills and communicating with health care providers and insurance companies absent a Power or Attorney. A well-crafted Health Care Directive can avoid conflicts between family members with respect to medical situations and relieve them of the burden of attempting to make challenging end of live decisions.
