Free Utah Advance Health Care Directives
Advance Health Care Directives for Free
During this temporary uncertain time with COVID-19 running rampant through the world, I would like to offer what services I can to help people around me. I am not a doctor, nor do I have any medical expertise or formal medical training. However, as a wills and trusts lawyer there is something I can do. I can help ease the pain caused by legal necessities around people’s healthcare, and I can do it for free. I am offering to help by drafting your Advance Health Care Directives without charge.
What I am offering is my service in creating your own Advance Health Care Directives.
Yes, you read that correctly. I want to help everyone I can with their own Advance Health Care Directives. This is the portion of an estate plan that gives a person the opportunity to select someone to talk to doctors and other medical providers when that person is unable to speak for themselves. It also lays out the groundwork for when, or if, a person wants to cease life sustaining care (i.e. to pull the plug).
Do I need to go to your office for my free Advance Health Care Directives?
You do not need to come into my office for your free Advance Health Care Directives. Right now we are practicing social distancing, and as long as you have access to a computer, email, printer, and a phone, I can help you. Most estate planning documents require witnesses or notaries. This document does require a witness, but your neighbor or friend can serve as your witness. The estate planning lawyer does not need to be present.
What do you need to do to get this portion of your Estate Plan for free?
You just need to call or message me. My phone number is (385) 298-0700, which can also be found on both the top and bottom of this page. There is a contact form to the right of this text if you are viewing this on a computer, or below this text if you are viewing this on your phone.
Is there anyone I cannot help?
Yes, I am legally restricted from bringing on as a client (free or paid) anyone who is an adverse party to legal proceedings I currently am conducting for other clients. This offer is restricted to those living in Utah. I am wholly unprepared to know the health care laws of other states and countries. Also, I am only one man and can do only so much. If I become too busy helping people for free, I will prioritize people who are over the age of 50 or who have health care issues that increase their risk of serious side effects or death from COVID-19. (Additional legal disclaimer: Although I want to help everyone I can, I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.)
