If you know of someone that might need some help with Medicaid, etc. PLEASE use an attorney that knows the ins and outs of this complicated and often confusing type of law.
I recommend the National Association of Elder Law Attorneys organization. They are specialists in estate planning, maximizing your money and how to deal with nursing homes, etc.
In Houston I personally know and recommend Attorney Jeff Skarda at 713-222-5301. I have heard him lecture many times on Social Security and Medicaid.
Or Attorney Marian Rosen at 713-222-6464.
I've heard Pi-Yi Mayo lecture many times on this topic. His phone number is 281-421-5774
There are other Texas members but since I have never met them personally I am not listing them.
