Living Wills and Other Advance Directives

Texas Lawyer Assists with Living Wills and Other Advance Directives

Attorney helps clients in the Dallas area to transfer decision-making authority in case of incapacity

Life is unpredictable, but it is possible to prepare for the unexpected. Creating living will and advance directive documents can ensure that if you ever become unable to make healthcare decisions for yourself, your decision-making powers are given to someone you trust to act in your best interest. These crucial documents can save your family heartache during a crisis, and they can be as broad or specific as you wish. At the Monceaux Law Firm, I advise my clients in the Dallas area and throughout Texas on relevant state laws and the various contingencies that can be addressed in written instructions. I have extensive experience helping people make their wishes clear and enforceable.

Texas attorney empowers people to manage medical treatment decisions

Advance directives are legal documents that allow you to clearly articulate your preferences regarding lifesaving medical interventions. They can set forth instructions on various matters and come in several forms. At the Monceaux Law Firm, I will take the time to discuss your options. An advance directive may include the following:

  • Living will/Directive to Physicians  — A living will states what kind of medical treatment you should receive if you are too sick or injured to express your wishes or give informed consent.
  • Do-not-resuscitate order — A DNR instructs medical personnel to refrain from performing CPR, electric shocks and other lifesaving measures if a person’s breathing or heartbeat stops. A DNR can prevent someone from being sustained on life support if they are brain dead.

I formulate clear documents to prevent misinterpretation or argument. This way, your family can avoid expensive litigation and move forward.
