We have over 14 years of experience assisting clients throughout Leesburg, VA to ensure their wishes are upheld.

We empower people to manage their own medical concerns

Advance directives can set forth instructions on various matters and come in several forms, including:

  • Advance Medical Directives. Also known as a living will, this documents states what kind of medical care you are to receive should you be too sick or injured to express your wishes. It is not a Will in the conventional sense as it does not distribute property and is meant to be executed while the person is alive.
  • Authorization to make anatomical gifts. In the event that you are not able to participate in decisions about your medical treatment, this document, usually combined with an Advance Medical Directive, authorizes someone you trust to make choices on your behalf.
