There’s Joy in Planning for the Future

April 19, 2010

Life Changes: Plan for It. That’s the motto of the law firm of Morgan and DiSalvo. I visited Loraine DiSalvo this week to get more information about how to best plan for the future. We talked about wills, advance health directives (the new term in Georgia for the living will), durable power of attorney (now part of the Advanced Health Care directive), and more.
