Elder Law

San Antonio Elder Law Attorney

The elderly have the right to be treated with dignity and respect in their years of physical and perhaps mental decline. That’s more than common sense–it’s also the law in the state of Texas. The law then goes on to define dignity and respect as encompassing the right to make their own choices about their personal care and to never be abused, neglected, or exploited. An elder law attorney is there to work toward making that dignity and respect a reality.

Elder law covers everything from clearly articulating your own wishes in a legal document to protecting a loved one you believe is suffering abuse. Call the Law Office of Paul D. Hardy at (726) 227-1090 for help.

Dealing With Elder Abuse

The exploitation and abuse of the elderly is a genuinely sickening crime and can take on several forms. Actual physical abuse is one tragic possibility, but it goes well beyond that. The refusal of a caregiver to give medication is elder abuse. So is leveraging access to food or medicine in exchange for something, most notably money.

Elder abuse is a felony offense in the state of Texas. Even third-degree felony charges can mean up to ten years in prison. Depending on the severity of the abuse, first-degree felony charges are possible. If you’re suspicious that someone you love is being subjected to abuse, an elder law attorney can work with you to gather the evidence and documentation needed to get prosecutors from the District Attorney’s office involved.

The Law Office of Paul D. Hardy is committed to seeing that our senior citizens get the dignity and respect they deserve in accord with both their humanity and the laws in the state of Texas. Whether you want to plan ahead for your own future or get legal help on behalf of someone you love, we’re here to help.
