Providing Comprehensive Elder Law Services For You

Our experienced Dallas-Fort Worth estate planning attorney works with individuals and caregivers across Texas in matters relating to:

  • Estate planning: We consider all the what ifs when we draft wills, powers of attorney and health care directives, and we can advise on sophisticated trusts to bypass probate, reduce estate taxes or provide for a disabled child.
  • Special-needs planning: We work with parents of special-needs individuals to make sure their loved ones receive the legal protection they need. We draft third-party, self-settled and pooled trusts, and we help with matters pertaining to the letter of intent, taxation and life insurance.
  • Medicaid guidance: We can preserve most — perhaps all — assets, even if your elderly parent has already entered a nursing home. It is never too late or too early to plan.
  • Veterans benefit assistance: We help veterans and surviving spouses qualify for additional income for assisted living costs or home health care.
  • Probate and estate administration: We assist executors and estate administrators with settling the estate after loved ones die. We provide careful preparation of your will. Our attorneys will also provide advice and guidance to executors regarding the gathering of estate assets, paying of bills and distribution of the remaining assets to beneficiaries.
