Welcome to the September Issue of the

Texas Elder Law E-Letter


Our next free Estate Planning Essentials Workshop will again be live. Registration for our next live workshop (which will be Saturday, September 17, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. until noon) can be made by calling us at (214) 720-0102 or signing up online at www.dallaselderlawyer.com.


Attendees often ask questions about estate planning, probate, Medicaid and Veterans benefits. We proceed to answer the questions over the course of the workshop (although there will be a presentation also).
