Cupertino Advance Directives Attorneys
Helping You Plan Ahead
Advance directives are legal documents that allow you to make decisions about your medical care in advance of a serious illness or injury. While you are healthy, you can plan for what you want to happen to you when you are not, and you can designate someone to make these decisions for you if you are unable to do so.
Advance directives also include living wills, which specify the care you do or do not want if you become terminally ill, and durable powers of attorney for health care, which designate a trusted person to make medical decisions for you in the event that you are unable to make them for yourself.
At GIlfix & La Poll Associates LLP, we can help you create a clear plan for your medical care and your end-of-life decision-making. We have experience working with clients in Cupertino and throughout the Bay Area, and we provide compassionate, professional guidance and support throughout the process. We can help you create the advance directives that are right for you and your family, and we can help you carry out your wishes when the time comes.
When You Should Have Advance Directive
Advance directives are important documents to have at all times, but they are particularly important when you have a serious illness or injury. If you are incapacitated and unable to make decisions for yourself, your advance directive will be used to guide your medical care. If you don't have one, your family members may have to make these decisions for you, and this could lead to disagreements and conflict.
Advance directives are also important when you are nearing the end of your life. When you are terminally ill, you may no longer be able to make decisions for yourself. If you have created an advance directive, these documents will help guide your medical care and ensure that you receive the care you want when you are no longer able to decide for yourself.
