San Antonio Woman

Look who’s in the November/December issue of San Antonio Woman! In this article, Carol discusses her passion for elder law and advocating for the elderly. Be sure to pick up a copy of this issue and follow along at San Antonio Woman

Here’s a snippet:

For more than two decades, attorney Carol Bertsch
has been a voice for the elderly and disabled. Although
Carol Bertsch originally intended to practice civil
rights law, the long-time San Antonio attorney found
her passion advocating for the elderly and disabled.

“I did employee law for a while, and when I left that, I
recognized that the elderly are not always treated with
dignity and respect the way that others are because
of ageism perhaps,” Bertsch said. “I felt like this is a
population I could serve without litigation because I had
become burned out with litigation. The elderly and people
with disabilities are often marginalized in our community,
so I try to be a voice for them.”

The Seminole, Texas native, who came to San Antonio
in 1983 to attend Our Lady of the Lake University, is
celebrating a milestone this year. Her firm, The Law Offices
of Carol Bertsch, PC, has been in business for 25 years with
a focus on elder and disability law. She and her staff recently
moved to a new, 3,900-square-foot building, all with their
clients’ safety in mind as the community continues to
grapple with the pandemic.
