Elder Care and Elder Law

by Amy Sharp

Margaret McCullough Connolly, Sugar Land Attorney and Counselor at Law

As individuals move into their “Golden Years,” it is important for them to not only have a will and provide for their family after death, it’s also important to have medical and financial powers of attorney to provide for and protect their needs as they age and become less able to manage for themselves. The choice of attorney to counsel them through this process is crucial, just like their choice of medical advisor.

Dr. Liza Leal, who has been practicing family medicine for almost 20 years, says, “We recommend our patients call on Fort Bend Attorney Margie Connolly to help bring peace of mind and offer advice during a very vulnerable time in their lives. I look at it as helping our family of patients to preserve their legacy. These individuals need someone who is available, accessible, understanding and knowledgeable. I’ve been blessed to know Margie for as long as I’ve been practicing. She treats every client as part of her family.”

Margie says, “Elder care and elder law are important, and can include a wide range of legal matters—including issues related to health care, long term care planning, guardianship, retirement, Social Security, Medicare/ Medicaid, and other important matters. For your aging loved ones, knowing they have designated and left instructions for someone they trust to take care of their needs—both medically and financially—as they age can be a source of great relief and comfort. It allows them to relax and enjoy their ‘Golden Years’…as they should!”

Dr. Leal adds, “Margie fully understands what the future holds if it is not addressed and acted upon. Once you have knowledge you are called to action. Her personal caring approach allows the most sensitive of topics to be addressed. Your family deserves a fulfilling quality life.”
