Areas of Practice
Elder Law Overview
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.
Advanced Planning for Medicaid Eligibility
Advanced Medicaid planning is one of the most important parts of any estate planning process. If your estate planning documents do not help you achieve Medicaid eligibility without requiring you to spend down all your life's savings, then something is probably wrong with your estate plan. At the elder law firm of Wright Abshire, located in Houston, Texas, our attorneys have extensive experience in managing the estate planning process for people concerned about Medicaid eligibility.
Creating a Texas Estate Plan to Meet Your Specific Needs
Many people are under the false impression that estate planning is
only for the wealthy. The reality is that estates of all sizes can
encounter legal difficulties when an effective plan is not in place,
and a comprehensive plan may go well beyond drafting a will.
At Wright Abshire we have a strong reputation and decades of experience in helping clients in the Houston area plan ahead to avoid unnecessary complications. We empathize with your situation, respect the goals you have for your family, and help you establish a plan that makes sense. Contact our estate planning and trust lawyers to discuss your goals today.
When a loved one dies, the family will need to distribute the assets of the estate under the watch of the probate court to ensure that all actions are carried out according to the terms set forth in the will. While this is a generally straightforward process, it can be time-consuming and costly. At Wright Abshire, Attorneys, our Houston probate attorneys can help guide you through this process in an efficient and effective manner. We Can Handle All of Your Estate Administration Needs. Our elder law attorneys can help you with all aspects of probate and estate administration. In addition to helping you with the distribution of assets outlined in a will, we can help you in administering any type of trust, including living trusts. You can rely on us to ensure that an estate will pass through probate according to the law and to the final wishes of a loved one.
