Advance Health Care Directives Services in Los Angeles

What Is an Advance Health Care Directive?

An Advance Health Care Directive is an estate planning document in which you appoint an agent who is authorized to make medical decisions for you and communicate with your doctors, health care providers, as well as carry out your wishes about termination of life support, organ donation, burial or cremation.

In this document you will consent to your agent gaining access to your medical information, and you will authorize your health care providers to give your medical records to your agent, while releasing them from liability under State and Federal law from doing so.

If you would like to learn more about creating an Advance Health Care Directive, we invite you to schedule a consultation with the Law Offices of Maria N. Jonsson, PC at your earliest convenience.

The Importance of Your Health Care Directive

Your Advance Health Care Directive is an extremely important document that literally places your life in the hands of your chosen agent. For that reason, it is very important to carefully choose this individual. It should be someone you trust implicitly with your life, who also has the fortitude to do that which you wish should be done under critical circumstances (such as terminating life support, organ donation, burial or cremation).

Maria Jonsson's Office
  • Mediator by Training & Peacemaker by Heart

    We believe that an Estate Plan should leave behind not only property, but most importantly – harmony, rather than tear families apart with poorly drafted or ambiguous and confusing terms.

  • We Work as Part of a Larger Team

    We work with our clients' financial planner, CPA, realtor, and insurance broker to implement a well-rounded and thorough legal plan for wealth preservation and inheritance transfer.

  • Strategic Planning & Attention to Detail

    We carefully look at each factor that affects the execution of an Estate Plan – from the perspective of minimizing and eliminating reassessment of property taxes to avoiding post-death conflicts.
