Houston Advance Directives Lawyer

Advance Directives & Wills Attorney

There may come a time when you are unable to make decisions about your medical care. Does your family know your treatment preferences? Does your physician know?

Talk with one of the estate planning attorneys at Hayes & Wilson, PLLC about an advance healthcare directive. We are committed to protecting our clients' futures and providing them with peace of mind. We will ensure your plans are clearly laid out for your family.

Advanced Directives Can Protect Your Medical Treatment Choices

Even when you think family members are clear about your wishes, they may disagree. Your doctor may be hesitant to take steps that you have not pre-approved — especially when family members disagree.

By putting your wishes in writing, your treatment preferences will be clear. Talk with one of our estate planning lawyers about the documents you may need, such as:

  • Medical Power of Attorney: With a medical power of attorney, you can be assured that your designated agent has the authority to make medical decisions on your behalf.
  • Directive to Physicians: This document gives specific instructions to medical caregivers about terminal issues involving life support and other matters.
  • HIPAA Authorization: This document will assure your designated agent has full access to your medical records and may discuss your condition with your doctors.
  • Pre-Need Designation of Guardian: You may designate a guardian for yourself should the need arise. You may also disqualify specific persons from serving as your guardian.

At Hayes & Wilson, PLLC, we are ready to help you with any estate planning, probate, or guardianship need. We focus on your specific needs, goals and concerns. Whether you have questions about Medicaid or are interested in a living trust, we are prepared to help you plan well so you can have peace of mind.
