Experience Drafting Advance Medical Directives

Your Family’s Law Firm

When dealing with issues as personal as end-of-life health care planning, it is important to work with an attorney who provides more than just legal answers. These issues are far too personal to handle as purely legal considerations. You need a legal team who will help you understand the legal implications of your various estate planning options, but will also remain compassionate and conscientious of the sensitive nature of these issues.

An advance medical directive is a document that communicates your medical wishes for end-of-life health care needs for the possible event that renders you unable to communicate these issues yourself.

At Weinstein & Randisi, our Rochester advance medical directives attorneys bring experience and a commitment to personalized service to help all of our clients establishing advance medical directives. We use our more than 50 years of legal experience, combined with a commitment to our clients’ interests, to provide uniquely personalized and effective legal counsel and representation through the process of establishing advance medical directives.

End Of Life Planning

Advance medical directives are an essential part of a comprehensive estate plan. These directives help you determine and communicate your wishes regarding a number of health care decisions that can arise regarding issues like:

  • Organ donation
  • Do not resuscitate (DNR) orders
  • Medical orders for life-sustaining treatment (MOLST) like breathing apparatus, feeding tubes and the like
  • The use of pain-killing medication

Although it can be difficult to address these sensitive issues, establishing an advance medical directive ahead of time can be a tremendous gift for your family. With a directive in place, your family will not have to make these difficult decisions for you or debate amongst themselves over the best course of action. They will thank you.

As your family’s law firm, we can talk you through these various decisions and help you understand your options. To schedule a free initial consultation with an experienced estate planning lawyer from Weinstein & Randisi, call 585-310-1578 (800-768-1780 toll free) or contact us online.
