Advance Directives help ensure that your wishes are given effect, so that you and your family can have peace of mind 


We can help ensure that your wishes are given effect, so that you and your family can have peace of mind.  Whether you need a last will and testament, trust, living will, health care proxy, durable power of attorney, or other kind of estate planning tool, our philosophy is to explain all your options clearly so you can decide which solutions fit your needs best.


With a little help from your friends at The Law Office of Jim D. Sarlis, your assets can be protected, your care can  be assured, and medical and end-of-life decisions can be made with dignity for all involved.

Advance Directives:  Wills, Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, and Health Care Proxies:  Creating documents that detail your health care and end-of-life decisions is a loving example of how much you care about your family. 

We are compassionate and mindful of the sensitive nature of these concerns.  We can provide legal assistance during the drafting of these documents to help you provide your loved ones with a clear expression of your wishes, as well as the authority to carry them out.
