When your or a loved one has been diagnosed with a terminal or life-threatening disease, the aftermath can often be overwhelming. Not only do you have to struggle through a whirlwind of heartbreaking emotions, but the logistics of you or your loved one’s legacy must also be taken into account. It is especially pertinent to devise a plan for how decisions will be made if you or a family member becomes incapacitated or passes away.
Illnesses or catastrophic injuries are not foreseeable events- that is why it is especially important to plan in advance for them. Because your assets are meaningful to you and your family, it is essential that you meet with a qualified attorney with experience in life and estate planning. At the Cochran Firms offices nationwide, we have a vast array of attorneys with the skills to help you plan for life’s accidents and surprises.
What is a Life Plan?
Life plans can take a variety of forms depending on our client’s needs and interests. Essentially a life plan is a series of contracts or plans that will map out how your finances will be taken care of, how decisions will be made on your behalf if you are incapacitated, and who will manage your affairs in the case of an emergency.
Life plans are an important task that will help give you and your family the peace of mind of knowing that your assets will be safeguarded, your wishes are honored, and your family members are provided for.
Working with an attorney to construct a life care plan may involve:
- Legal services to protect your assets
- Ways to preserve your wealth
- Advocacy services for the best quality health care
- Coordination of care for your family members
Life care plans are continually revised and reviewed as you get older and your needs or desires may change. Our attorneys at The Cochran Firm will get to know you individually so that they can best understand and serve you.
