Living Wills

A living will is a legal instrument that provides instructions to loved ones and medical providers about an individual's wishes concerning end-of-life medical decisions. A health care power of attorney gives a person decision-making authority over the health care decisions of another. If you want to retain control over your medical decisions after you become incapacitated or would like to give that control to a trusted loved one, you may wish to establish a living will or health care power of attorney.

The experienced attorneys at Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford have extensive experience handling these types of documents and other estate planning issues for our Pennsylvania clients. We are dedicated to bringing your most critical legal goals to fruition.

Helping You Prepare An Effective Estate Plan

Under Pennsylvania law, a health care power of attorney and living will can be established to authorize one person to communicate your wishes as to the initiation, continuation, withholding or withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment.

Creation of a living will or health care power of attorney can help to make an otherwise foggy picture much clearer in the event of an unforeseen medical setback. Instead of your loved ones agonizing over decisions about life support and end-of-life treatment, those decisions will have already been made, or will be in the hands of a trusted and legally authorized person.

Going without a living will or health care power of attorney is a risk many choose to take, but having one can give you peace of mind that your wishes will be carried out when you are no longer able to make those decisions for yourself. If you wish to establish a living will or health care power of attorney, our estate planning lawyers can help you with all of the necessary legal details.
