A Trusted Attorney Assists with Creating an Advance Medical Directive

Offering help with selecting a health care proxy

Who can speak for you when you can no longer speak for yourself? Illness can sometimes rob us of the ability to make the most basic decisions about our own health care, leaving our families and loved ones in a position of having to guess what we would have wanted. Armstrong & Lamberti, PLLC can help you draft an important document to address a multitude of possible medical outcomes. We help you create a living will and choose a health care proxy to make decisions for you in case you become incapacitated. We have decades of experience handling elder law cases and are attentive to your needs as we keep you completely informed about your options.

Advance medical directives provide a number of options

An advance medical directive does more than just tell doctors how to handle your medical treatment. With the aid of an elder law attorney in Staten Island, you can develop a directive that takes the following into account:

  • Living will. Living wills direct medical professionals to handle your medical treatment according to your desires, even if you can no longer speak for yourself. This document allows you to determine the types of care you want and do not want in various scenarios.
  • Health care proxy. A healthcare proxy is a document certifying someone else to make medical decisions on your behalf if you are no longer capable of doing so. Selecting a healthcare proxy offers clear direction for medical professionals if something happens during your medical care that is not mentioned in your living will.

For more than 40 years, Armstrong & Lamberti, PLLC , has been working in all areas of elder law, including creating living wills and trusts. Turn to us for answers to all of your questions regarding advance medical directives and other estate planning issues.
