Boca Raton Advance Directives Attorney
High Quality, Personalized Legal Support
Have you taken the time to decide who will make important decisions about
your medical treatment if you become incapacitated or are unable to make
decisions for yourself? Do know which type of medical care you would want
if you find yourself in a medical crisis due to an unexpected injury or illness?
If you end up in such a situation and you don’t have advance directives
in your estate plan, then major decisions that can impact your health
and future will have to be made by complete strangers. By adding an advanced
health care directive to your estate plan, you can have peace of mind
knowing you ate prepared for the unknown and that your precise instructions
will be respected and followed when you can’t speak for yourself.

We can help individuals plan for a wide variety of ancillary documents,
Durable Power of Attorney: This allows for your agent(s) to act in a financial capacity and in accordance
with your best interest in mind.
Health Care Surrogate: This health care directive allows your agent(s) to make health care decisions
when you are not able to do so.
Living Will: This document allows the principal (the person creating the document)
to memorialize their known wishes with regard to resuscitation, feeding
tubes, and other end-of-life measures.
HIPAA Release of Confidential Medical Records: A signed HIPAA release form must be obtained from a patient before their
protected health information can be shared with other individuals or organizations.
Designation of Preneed Guardian: Permits an individual to select who they would like to take care of themselves
if they ever become incapacitated.
The above are ancillary legal documents that specify who will act as your
agent(s) in the event that you are incapacitated, with the exception of
the Durable Power of Attorney, which is effective the moment it is signed.
