Medical Issues Need Care & Attention

No one ever expects to be unable to make their own decisions in life, especially important medical decisions. The reality is that there are times when a patient is unable to make decisions for one reason or another. That is when doctors turn to family and spouses for decisions. However, without a legal document that grants your loved ones such permissions, your family may not be able to help you or the doctor.

A medical power of attorney will help your loved ones help you. With this document, the person or persons you entrust to make decisions for you and your doctor can work together to do what is best for your care. The HIPPAA Release of Authority will allow someone you trust to review your medical records. Without this document, your decision makers will be severely handicapped. A living will provides a specific directive for doctors regarding treatments for you. These are just a few examples of documents you should have prepared and why they are needed. Trust The Gauthier Law Firm to assist you with sorting through these options and guiding you through the steps you need to take.

No matter how young or old you are, you should have these legal documents prepared and kept in a safe place should they ever be needed. Inform the person or persons you have elected to entrust your care to so they can take action for you as quickly as possible.

Protect Your Assets & Your Children

Young parents may feel they will be around to raise their children and guide them through life. However, life doesn't always go as planned. Just as you make sure your family is provided for in life, you must do the same for them in your passing. Our compassionate trust and will attorneys can help you plan for the unthinkable.

If you do not tell the world what you want for your family with wills, trusts, and guardianships, the courts will make those decisions for you. Instead, we can help you write your last will and testament, help you arrange for your children's guardianships, and set up trusts that best meet your family's needs. Leave nothing to chance and hope that later you will have the time to get these things done. Your loved ones will be grateful that you took the time to plan carefully for their future. The Gauthier Law Firm can help answer questions and assist with your estate planning needs.
