Lawyer For Drafting Health Care Directives

Despite our best laid plans for the future, unexpected events can occur that may leave us mentally incapacitated. Although no one wants to plan for such occurrences, health care directives, durable powers of attorney and living wills can act as insurance in case they do.

Although most clients do not come to the Law Office of Horton & Horton, P.A., requesting a health care directive, living will or durable power of attorney, they are documents we highly recommend for a thorough estate plan, regardless of age. We are fully prepared to answer any questions you may have regarding these valuable tools.

Contact our firm today in Clermont at 888-672-4205 or locally at 352-432-1618 for a free initial consultation. We strive to promptly and personally answer all phone calls and emails.

What Is A Health Care Surrogate?

A health care surrogate is someone who makes key medical decisions on your behalf in the event you become incapacitated. If you do not have one, the hospital or doctors will determine the identity of your closest family member(s) and obtain their consent instead. Instead of adding this burden to your family's list of worries, prepare ahead of time with a health care directive.

If you are considering a health care surrogate, it is important that you choose someone who understands your wishes and will make appropriate decisions for you. As an experienced health care directive attorney, I can advise on what makes a good health care surrogate and provide additional information on these documents to help you make sound decisions for your family and future.
