Why Advanced Directives Are as Important as Your Will

Having advanced directives in place is just as important as having a will or a trust set up. Here’s why.

Today we are honored to be joined by Merideth Nagel, P.A., to talk about advanced directives and why they should be a priority for anybody who has a will or a trust.

“These are things that will be taken care of while you’re still alive.” 


An advanced directive is a term that lawyers use to describe documents that someone with an estate will need to sign to answer questions about who can make healthcare decisions for them, who their power of attorney is, and even what kind of conditions they want to die under.

Wills only affects what happens after you die, but advanced directives are things that will be taken care of while you’re still alive. When you don’t have this in place in advance, you run the risk of having those directives taken away.

Merideth and her team help a lot of people out with this. Their attorneys have decades of experience in helping people sort out their advanced directives. You can reach out to Meridith and her team at (352) 394-7408 or visit their website if you have any questions.
