Interesting NYT Article About Advance Directives

You may have seen this article from the New York Times:

The “trouble” is not with the advance directives; rather, it’s a matter of record-keeping. But, luckily, in North Carolina, we have an effective Advance Directive Registry where documents are filed and available for viewing online by authorized health care providers.

In addition to preparing these documents and assisting clients in the proper execution of these documents, we will help clients take proper steps to ensure that their directives are legally enforced.
