Cleveland Tennessee Living Will Attorney Jack Tapper

Cleveland Living Will attorney Jack Tapper has the experience, skills, and dedication to make your Living Will a personal document that satisfies your objectives for end-of-life decisions. You are assured of the confidentiality and highest ethics when consulting at the Bradley County Law Offices of Jack W. Tapper.

A Living Will is a legal document that expresses your wishes on whether or not you want life-prolonging treatments, and to what extent, when you are faced with an end-of-life illness. Although it is called a Living Will, it really is not a Will. A Will, usually called a Last Will, speaks about the disposition of your assets and payment of debts, and it becomes effective at the time of your death. The “Living” Will is actually a written declaration that is effective while you are alive, stating the kind of treatment you do or do not want from health care professionals in end-of-life situations when you are unable to communicate with them due to your health status.

When considering a Living Will, you should consult with estate attorney Jack Tapper about a Health Care Power of Attorney, or Advance Health Care Directive, a more complete document that not only includes the same or similar declarations of your Living Will, but authorizes a person you choose to make health care decisions for you when you are mentally incapable of making them.

Call the Law Offices of Jack W. Tapper at 423-472-9512 for a consultation about a Living Will in contrast to the benefits of an Advance Health Care Directive.
