Dedicated to providing compassionate legal advice with guardianship issues and special needs estate planning to Texas families of children and adults with intellectual, developmental and physical differences.
A Guardian is a person who has the legal authority to care for the personal, financial, medical and property interests of another.
Not only do we walk you through the Guardianship process for your special needs or elderly loved one, we shall also provide advice as to your Guardianship duties pursuant to statutory law, as well as prepare a Declaration of Successor Guardianship.
ALTERNATIVES TO GUARDIANSHIPS
One must keep in mind how restrictive Guardianships are!
In circumstances where a permanent Guardianship may not be needed and your loved one has legal capacity to advise who they wish to make future legal, financial and medical decisions on their behalf, our firm shall advise you and your family as to which proposed Alternatives to Guardianship may best align with your family’s needs.
WILLS & SPECIAL NEEDS TRUSTS
Developing an estate plan for a Special Needs family member comes with the unique challenge of preserving his or her public benefits such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
Our office will work diligently with you to create an estate plan that not only protects these important benefits, but reflects your specific instructions as to how your Special Needs loved one should be cared for.
