Kim Hegwood Attorney at Law, Podcaster

Kim Hegwood, born in Bay City, is an Elder Law and Estate Planning Attorney based in Houston, Texas. Kim has been a practicing Attorney since she graduated from South Texas College of Law in 1996. After watching her grandparents struggle to maintain their independence as they grew older, trying to navigate the challenges of aging, and deal with the legal, financial, and emotional challenges that our loved ones face in their golden years, Kim dedicated her career to helping families preserve their dignity and protect their assets.

Kim started her own law firm in 1998 so she could practice law her way – with a focus on family. Kim is passionate about educating her clients, helping them choose legal strategies that will achieve their goals and help them age with security and dignity. As a mother of three, Kim enjoys spending most of her free time with her children and grandchildren when she is not volunteering at one of her favorite charities.

Kim’s practice focuses exclusively on Elder Law, Asset Protection, Estate Planning, Medicaid Crisis Planning, Probate, and Guardianship. By witnessing what her grandparents endured, and with a growing number of Dementia diagnoses, Kim understands what her clients are going through and dedicates herself and her practice to treating each of her clients as if they were her own family. Kim takes pride in helping families after facing a diagnosis of Dementia to help avoid a costly guardianship process. Kim continues to expand her practice to better serve the needs of individuals throughout their golden years.
