Shannon Pawley, The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Encourages Readers To Think And Plan For The Unthinkable While Calm.

The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, writes about the decision-making powers that an Advance Directive for Healthcare gives individuals when faced with circumstances that make it impossible for them to make important decisions.

DECATUR, GA, May31, 2023: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new article on the law firm’s website entitled “The Power Of An Advance Directive In Georgia.” Ms. Pawley urges readers to “think about the unthinkable before the unthinkable happens.”

Pawley writes, “Georgia is not unique in acknowledging Advance Directives for health care. In fact, most states do. And, most states have provisions accepting Advance Care Directives from other states that have similar requirements.

“Since we reside in Georgia,” Pawley states, “I’m specifically writing about the power a Georgia Advance Directive for health care gives an individual. Typically, Advance Directives are components of Estate Plans though they can be stand-alone documents.”

As Pawley notes, “We never know what life has in store for us. It’s always better to be prepared for the unexpected than to be unprepared.” She continues emphasizing, “If the pandemic taught us anything it is that it is so much better not to be forced to make important decisions during tragic situations. We all have time to make these difficult and important decisions while calm, peaceful, and thinking clearly.”

According to Pawley, “In the state of Georgia, creating an Advance Directive for health care gives you the right to select a medical agent to make decisions on your behalf should you become unable to make these decisions for yourself. You will also have the power to select your end-of-life treatment options.” She poses questions that will need to be decided. “Do you want to accept or refuse medical treatment? Do you want to withhold or remove life-giving care in the event of a terminal condition?” Pawley recognizes, “These are not the kinds of things people enjoy thinking about. But, as too many people found out, they are important things to think about before a situation arises.”
