Brooklyn Estate Planning & Wills Attorneys
At the law offices of Goldberg Sager & Associates, we can help you create a living will that specifies the type of medical care you wish to have if you are suffering from a terminal illness. Our lawyers realize that drafting such a document can be emotionally trying, and we are committed to giving you the personalized legal guidance and sound advice you need.
A well-thought-out estate plan includes provisions for health care decisions to be made at a time when you may be unable or unwilling to make those decisions yourself. People don’t want to think about dying or what might happen to their families if they become gravely ill. But creating a health care proxy, it can greatly reduce the stress and emotional pain your family experiences in the event that you sustain a serious injury or illness.
Lawyers Who Can Assist You With Many Aspects Of Estate Planning
The dedicated lawyers at Goldberg Sager & Associates can assist your family with the following estate-planning matters:
- Living will: This document is used to communicate a person’s desire that his or her life not be prolonged or that extraordinary measures not be used when recovery is unlikely.
- Healthcare proxy: An advance directive is sometimes called a health care proxy. It only takes effect when you are incapacitated and unable to make health care decisions for yourself. Once you regain the ability to make health care decisions for yourself, a health care proxy is no longer in effect.
- Power of attorney: It is a document that appoints a specific person to make decisions for you in the event you are unable to do so due to incapacitation or unavailability. These decisions are primarily financial, as a health care proxy may be someone different than the person who holds power of attorney.
The lack of a living will, health care proxy or power of attorney may cause your family members unnecessary delay and expense at a time of crisis. Our experienced New York lawyers have helped thousands of New Yorkers and people from out of state who have interests in New York.
