Planning for the future is always a smart decision. You are making a concerted effort that helps yourself and your family. Despite our best efforts to plan ahead, a simple fact of life is that anything can happen. Therefore, it is important to leave clear instructions to your surviving family so that your wishes are carried out. For these situations, it is important to work with a will attorney in Pittsburgh and Butler County, Pennsylvania, whom you can trust. At the Law Offices of Kelton M. Burgess, LLC, we work with you to provide, honest, to-the-point support. Our will lawyer assists in the establishment of wills, living wills, and health care directives.

Your Source for Living Wills

Livings wills, also known as “health care directives,” are documents that specify a person’s instructions for care and treatment in the event they can no longer make decisions. These documents can assign who can make those decisions on behalf of the document’s author, in which case the assignee can exercise medical power of attorney. Living wills can also outline instructions for health care providers on how to continue treatment. The living will is useful in the sense that it prepares your loved ones for what to expect in the event you are incapacitated. This alleviates an emotional burden and allows all parties to have peace of mind with your wishes.

Another document that our lawyer can establish with you is the HIPAA waiver. The waiver authorizes your medical information to be disclosed to a third party, such as another family member or health care provider. This document makes it easier for you to receive treatment at other facilities, should your living will mandate a transfer or similar scenario.
