Part of a complete estate plan
Living Wills by Equal Justice Law Group
Imagine being in an accident and unable to communicate — or facing an end-of-life medical situation where your physician has pronounced you incapable of making your own decisions.
No one wants to be in such a position, but the fact is, many people do find themselves in exactly these types of situations. And without a legal document detailing how you would like your health care to be addressed, your life could be prolonged artificially, against your wishes.
Equal Justice Law Group focuses on creating living wills for individuals just like you. Used in concert with a last will and testament, a living will explicitly states how you would like your end-of-life medical decisions to be made. It relieves your family members and loved ones of having to make difficult decisions on your behalf, because you've already made them for yourself.
Living wills can be combined with a health care proxy, where you designate someone to make health care decisions for you in the event you are incapacitated or unable to communicate. Together, these two documents are known as an advanced health care / medical directive.
Living wills are essential in the following scenarios:
- You want to specify your wishes to ensure they are carried out
- You face a surgery or hospitalization
- You want a complete estate plan
- You have been diagnosed with a terminal health condition
