As an attorney, you’ve no doubt suggested, then coaxed, and sometimes insisted, that your client or clients take care of important business, in the form of end-of-life documentation.
This will include the drawing up of Wills and completion of Advance Medical Directives.
Specifically in this section, we discuss why you have a unique opportunity to play an important role in fostering organ, tissue and eye donation.
It is our earnest hope that as you discuss end-of-life matters with your clients, that you also explain to them why life-saving donation, a truly meaningful legacy, is a matter that they should seriously consider.
