Living Wills

A Living Will (also sometimes known as an “Advance Directive”) is a document that directs your medical providers and loved ones what your wishes are in the event that you are terminal and in need of extraordinary life saving measures.  A living will directs that your dying shall not be artificially prolonged if you are diagnosed with an incurable injury, disease, or illness certified to be a terminal condition by that number of physicians you dictate that your death will occur whether or not life-sustaining procedures are utilized.  By having a living will, the pressure of making an end of life decision is removed from your immediate family members.  Here at the Law Offices of Shechtel and Associates, P.A. we can assist you in creating a living will that best suits your beliefs.
