Trusted Fort Worth Estate Planning Lawyers
While many of us take precautions about managing our assets and estates in the event of our death, fewer of us take measures to retain control of our medical care if we ever become incapacitated. Old age, disease, and unexpected accidents can suddenly put us in a state where we are unable to make key decisions about our own health. Without taking the appropriate measures, these decisions can fall in hands of family members we don’t trust, doctors, or even the state of Texas itself.
There is a way to safeguard against this scenario, however. With a Texas medical power of attorney and directive, or “living will,” you can address any number of medical circumstances and provide legally-protected guidelines to direct your medical treatment. At The Wynne Law Firm, our experienced team is well-versed in helping clients establish these documents and ensure their future in case the unexpected occurs. Our dedicated, thorough work has not only made our firm a member of the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys but has also provided countless clients peace of mind.

Choosing Your “Agent”
The key to establishing an optimal Texas medical power of attorney and directive is the client’s selection of an “agent.” An agent is a trusted individual that the client can count on to honor the living will and make decisions related to your health care when you are not able.
Clients usually choose the following individuals to be their agent:
- Adult children
- Close family members
- Close friends
The state of Texas does now allow individuals to identify residential care providers, health care providers, medical personnel, or residential care employees as their agent. At The Wynne Law Firm, we are ready to help you parse your agent options and also assess the medical circumstances you want to address in your living will. Our goal is to ensure that you feel confident that any potential health care decisions about your future treatment are according to your preference and no one else’s.

“David and I developed a good relationship over the course of my divorce proceedings. I felt that he kept me well-informed of the proceedings. I also felt that he had my best interests at heart as well as understood the limits of my finances. I highly recommend him.”
