We Use Our Experience In Elder Law To Give You Peace Of Mind
We are elder law attorneys dedicated to assisting families locally and around the country with complex issues concerning aging family members and persons with disabilities. Our clients come to us with concerns about their future or their loved ones' well-being. We offer unwavering support to address your legal concerns.
Elder law does not refer specifically to one area of the law. Rather, the term encompasses a range of legal matters that affect senior citizens. In fact, our attorneys Wesley E. Wright and Molly Dear Abshire co-authored the book "Texas Elder Law," a comprehensive, up-to-date guide in matters of estate planning, long-term care, Medicaid planning, guardianships and other issues commonly faced by Texas seniors.
Contact our Houston elder law attorneys to learn how we can develop a plan based on your unique needs. We are committed to helping you put the right measures in place to protect your future and your loved ones.
Elder Law Attorneys Taking The Mystery Out Of Qualifying For Medicaid
A major part of our practice involves helping senior citizens structure their finances in order to ensure Medicaid eligibility without putting valuable assets at risk. We help senior citizens with:
- Medicaid eligibility
- Medicaid planning
- Medicaid planning for people with Alzheimer's disease or dementia
- Medicaid estate recovery
- Medicaid Estate Recovery Program (MERP) claims
We know that this important government program is confusing for many families. Our elder law attorneys are committed to clearing up any confusion you may have about Medicaid, while guiding you through every aspect of the process.
Devoted To Helping Veterans And Their Spouses Secure VA Benefits
Those who have served our country and their spouses should receive every benefit available to them. Veterans and surviving spouses who are eligible for a Veterans Administration (VA) pension and who require substantial home care may qualify for benefits through the Aid and Attendance program. This is designed to provide qualifying veterans or their spouses with monthly stipends to cover the costs of in-home care.
If your family member is a veteran or a surviving spouse and is currently receiving a pension and has in-home care needs, our elder care lawyers can guide you through the process of preparing and submitting an application for this crucial benefit.
