The Bond Law Firm: Attorney Robert (Bob) D. Bond is an Estate Planning Attorney in Houston that has been serving families and seniors since 1994. Mr. Bond is Board Certified in Estate Planning and Probate by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, he is a Certified Public Accountant, and as a Veterans Benefit Attorney has been accredited by the Veterans Administration. Mr. Bond is a veteran who retired from the U.S. Army after 20 years of service. He was a Regular Army Infantry Officer, and attained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Jeff Green, Stephanie Searcy, and Cathy Durrett are all long-time employees of the law firm.
What Do We Do? The Bond Law Firm serves clients who need estate planning or assistance in obtaining Medicaid or VA benefits.
- Estate planning typically includes the preparation of Wills, Living Trusts, and Powers of Attorney. For larger estates, it also includes the creation of Family Partnerships, Life Insurance Trusts, and various irrevocable trusts. Estate planning frequently raises questions about estate, gift, and income tax considerations. Additionally as a Houston Probate Lawyer, Bob is very familiar with Texas Law and the Houston Probate courts.
- An Elder Law Attorney generally assists clients who need help with Medicaid Estate Planning to pay for long term care in a nursing home. A Miller Trust is often sought after to help qualify for Medicaid, which the Law Firm has done many over the years in the course of assisting families. Elder Law also includes planning for veterans and the widows of veterans who need VA Assisted Living Benefits (also known as Aid and Attendance) to help pay for the costs of long-term care. Elder Law can be viewed as a sub-area of estate planning because clients seeking to obtain Medicaid or VA benefits typically need to review and update their estate planning, and knowledge of estate planning is essential to the Medicaid and VA benefits process.
- For most families, the cost of long term care for a loved one is a financial emergency. The individual's income generally does not cover the cost of care in a nursing facility. These costs are typically in excess of $5,500 per month. In addition, finding a solution to caring for a loved one who is in poor health is highly stressful for the family. The law firm has helped many families deal with these concerns. If you are in need of a Houston Medicaid Attorney or a Houston Veterans Attorney, you should not delay in beginning the process.
How Does the Process Begin? In most cases, you will meet with Mr. Bond and his staff in a free, no obligation initial consultation. Towards the end of the meeting, he will present you with a fee summary showing the fixed fee for the work.
