Elder Law

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 matters.

Do You Need Help Caring for Your Elders?

If you are faced with any circumstance involving your elders, you may want to seek counsel from a Texas estate lawyer who has experience in elder law.

More than ever, genuine compassion and trustworthy familiarity with the numerous legal processes are required, and we provide just that at our law firm.
