Maryland allows any competent person to create an advance directive. Two witnesses are required, one of whom cannot benefit from the death of the principal.

If you need help please contact our office and we will send you our Health Care Advance Planning document organizer.

Our advance directive is a compilation of the appointment of the Health Care Agent and successors and the corresponding authority; a Living Will (Advance Directive) in which you choose your preferences for End of Life; and a HIPPA release for your agent(s).


If you do not have a health care agent, Maryland Law provides a hierarchy of persons to serve; these may not be your preference. Therefore, we suggest that you prepare an Advance Directive/Health Care Power of Attorney.
