Documents (Get your ducks in a row!)
A Wisconsin advance directive is a document that outlines a person’s healthcare treatment preferences and is used in the event that a person becomes incapacitated or unable to speak. This also establishes an “agent” to be able to speak on the person’s behalf (usually a spouse or family member).

State Bar of Wisconsin
The State Bar of Wisconsin is the integrated bar association of the U.S. state of Wisconsin. Created by the Wisconsin Supreme Court for all attorneys who hold a Wisconsin law license, the State Bar of Wisconsin aids the courts in improving the administration of justice, provides continuing legal education and other services for its members, and supports the education of law students. The SBW also provides public services, including attorney referrals, public education, and reduced-fee legal assistance
Bar Association (United States)
Unlike some mandatory state bar associations, the SBW is not a part of the Wisconsin state government. This means that the State Bar of Wisconsin does not play a role in regulating the practice of law in Wisconsin. Instead, the only major focuses of the SBW are to further the administration of justice in the state, promote the continual improvement of Wisconsin’s legal community, and provide aid to Wisconsin residents.
