None of us know what the future holds. No matter where you live in Central Florida - Orlando, Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach, Ormond Beach, Port Orange, Bunnell, Palm Coast, St. Augustine, or surrounding communities - accidents, illness, or other traumas can strike at any time. In some cases these traumas leave us unable to make competent decisions about medical procedures, Legal Wills, and our Estates. Or, we may may not be able to communicate those decisions effectively. Of course, times of medical crisis are when it is most essential to be able to communicate your wishes regarding healthcare, your Legal Will, and Estate Planning. By creating a Living Will or similar legal document, you designate a representative who you trust in order to execute your wishes on your behalf should you become medically unable to communicate those wishes.
