What Is Elder Law?

Elder law accounts for any of the legal needs that are particular to people aged 65 or older. As a court process, elder law is more likely to be concerned with document preparation rather than litigation. These documents are measures like wills and trusts and directives for future medical needs. Because these documents are incredibly complex, working with an experienced Pearland elder law attorney like Michelle E. Murphy is essential. 

Some people have the impression that they can cut corners on these measures because they have seen that there are online processes for aspects like will creation. However, these online templates are unlikely to be legally compliant–estate planning law is different across states–and they certainly can’t account for your individual needs. When you work with Michelle E. Murphy, you have the assurance that your estate plan and other elder law details will be tailored to your particular concerns.

What Services Does Our Pearland Elder Law Attorney Offer?

There are several aspects of elder law that you should investigate in order to ensure that you have a fully fleshed out plan for your future. These aspects include, but are by no means limited to, the following:

  • Wills and trusts: Your will(s) and trust(s) are the foundation of your estate plan. These measures ensure that your assets will reach your designated beneficiaries, your wishes will be respected at the end of your life and beyond, and that your possessions can bypass the stressful probate process and reach your loved ones quicker and with less hassle.
  • Medicaid planning: Medicaid planning is the process by which senior citizens can qualify for the government-funded service known as Medicaid. Medicaid is your best bet for ensuring that your future healthcare needs–particularly nursing home needs–are covered and will not deplete the wealth that you wish to leave behind for your family members.
  • Power of attorney: By creating an advanced directive–also known as a living will–and empowering a designated person with power of attorney, you can ensure that your future medical decisions will be accounted for and respected.

To reiterate, these are some of the highlights of elder law, but they are by no means the only areas with which Michelle E. Murphy can assist you. If you have a particular concern that you would like to discuss with our Pearland elder law attorney, you can review it with her during your initial consultation.
