Elder Law Attorney in Texas
Caring For Those Who Cared For You
Just as when we are very young, we need extra care and attention when we
grow older. Day-to-day tasks and personal needs may become too difficult
for the elderly to complete safely. Assisted living facilities and written
wills and testaments will eventually be in question and you may find yourself
faced with questions regarded elder law. At
The Law Offices of Alex R. Hernandez, Jr. PLLC, we have years of combined experience that we can use to help you with
just such situations.
What is elder law?
If there are rules and regulations that pertain to the elderly, they are
categorized under the practice of elder law. While the topics can be varied
and numerous, there are three sections of elder law that seem to come
up the most:
Estate planning: Drafting a last will and testament can be more than complicated for a senior
citizen, but it is a necessary task all the same. A professional estate
attorney can help you ensure assets are distributed fairly.
Medicaid: Insurance disputes involving the care for elders and the disabled are
numerous. Without proper litigation, you may be paying thousands out of
pocket for the care of your elders.
Fiduciary duties: In the event that your elder becomes incapable of making his or her own
decisions due to one incapacitation or another, someone must be granted
fiduciary authority over business and legal matter.
