Living Wills (Advance Directives): Protecting Your Future Now

Our comprehensive services in the areas of living wills and advance directives are designed to help you create customized legal documents with the power to accomplish your goals. Most notably, your living will can specify what kinds of medical interventions you approve or reject if you lose the capacity to make your own choices at the time of a crisis.

Defining Living Wills And Advance Directives

Living wills in Maryland are called advance directives. This planning tool lets you choose a health care agent to make medical decisions for you when your doctor determines that you are incapacitated or unable to make them yourself.

Under your Advance Directive, your health care agent can access and view your medical information, discuss treatments and procedures and inform doctors about what medical actions should be taken. Their far-reaching powers and capabilities are like those of medical power of attorney agents. You can appoint anyone you want to oversee your advance directive.
