You Have a Will, But Have You Planned for Incapacity?
A strong estate plan should go further than simply outlining what happens to your property after your death. It should also establish guidelines to help your family manage in case you become incapacitated.
Advance health care directives and powers of attorney are the tools used to establish these guidelines, and we can help you set them up. At The Law Offices of C. Lee Hewitt, we listen and we take the steps to set up a plan that works for you.

Advance Health Care Directives
Advance health care directives are sometimes referred to as living wills. These documents establish how you will be treated medically in case of incapacity.
When you come to our attorneys to help you set up advance health care directives, we will delve deep to make them work for you. Simply stating whether or not you would like to be on life support is not enough. For example, what if you would only need to be on life support for a few weeks? We will help you explore various scenarios so you can make your wishes known.
Powers of Attorney
By establishing a power of attorney, you are placing someone in charge of your financial dealings. This person will handle your bills and all other monetary matters.
We will carefully walk you through your options to help you decide on whom to give power of attorney, and what that power will entail. You will be provided with the knowledge you need to make informed choices.
