What is a Living Will?

Living wills have recently been thrust into the spotlight through current events and a growing awareness of their importance. Also known as advance directives, health care directives or directives to physicians, living wills dictate what intervention (life support, feeding tubes and artificial hydration) should be taken and under what circumstances (permanent unconsciousness, comatose state, terminal condition, vegetative state).

At Gellner Law Group, we are Washington estate planning lawyers with over 35 years of experience in wills and estate planning. We help clients explore situations that commonly arise and scenarios they may not have considered. Living wills allow terminally ill patients to die on their own terms and with dignity. They also reduce family conflicts by clearly defining one's wishes.

There is No Reason to Wait

No one expects to be injured in a sudden accident. Severe illnesses can occur suddenly and without warning. The last thing you want to do is wait until it is too late to act. Taking decisive action now is always the best course.

A living will is not overly expensive and could save your family thousands in legal costs if you are terminal and cannot communicate. Gellner Law Group offers estate planning services that are affordable for middle-income families.

Living wills may be contested if drafted improperly. Gellner Law Group will help ensure that your living will is in line with the letter of the law and that your wishes will be respected.
