Our Clarksville Advance Medical Directives Attorneys Protect Your End-of-Life Wishes
Honoring your wishes within the confines of the law in drafting your healthcare documents
The importance of healthcare decisions
Advance directives, which include living wills, are an important part of estate planning. These documents legally describe your healthcare preferences in the event that you are unable to speak or make medical decisions for yourself. End-of-life issues, in the event of lengthy illnesses, are also addressed in these documents. The Clarksville advance medical directives attorneys of Bateman & Bateman, PC are experienced and compassionate when it comes to helping you with this deeply personal legal issue.
The living will and the advance care plan
Advance medical care directives are frequently prepared at the same time you and your Clarksville advance medical care lawyer are drawing up a last will and testament or revocable trust. The living will and the advance care plan are both legally used under Tennessee law. The living will addresses medical issues relating to people who cannot speak for themselves, are terminally ill and have no hope of recovery. The advance care plan similarly allows you to state medical care wishes given a variety of medical scenarios. It is essential to employ the services of a Clarksville probate attorney when creating a living will or advance care plan. Bateman & Bateman, PC focuses on you, the client, and honors your wishes within the confines of the law in drafting your healthcare documents.
