I Will Protect My Family

Adults of any age can suffer an unexpected serious illness or injury leaving them incapacitated. We understand the grief that family members go through when the unexpected happens to a loved one. You can protect your family from unnecessary disputes concerning your health care and the management of your property should you be unable to speak for yourself due to incapacity. We help clients prepare the legal tools to give their families the legal guidance and authority to speak on your behalf — according to your wishes. Important gifts to your family include:

  • Durable powers of attorney: A durable power of attorney allows you to appoint a trusted person to manage your financial accounts during any period that you are incapacitated and unable to make decisions for yourself.
  • Medical powers of attorney: You can appoint a loved one, a family member or a trusted friend to make medical decisions on your behalf should an injury or illness leave you unconscious or otherwise mentally incapacitated.
  • Living wills: In Texas, a living will is known as a medical directive to physicians. You can let your family and doctors know your true wishes regarding the use of artificial methods to extend your life should you suffer an irreversible or terminal medical condition. A living will is invaluable in protecting your family from having to make uninformed decisions on your behalf during a difficult time.
