Healthcare Power of Attorney and Living Will
Staten did a Healthcare Power of Attorney and Living Will for me. The process was painless: he asked for my facts (name, dob, etc) and completed the documents for me. He kept a file at his office and gave me a copy for myself and the people I named. I had never done either one of these documents before, but I would go back to him for any updates or additional legal work I may need in the future.
