Paul Premack, The Premack Law Office

8031 Broadway
San Antonio Texas , 78209
United States

Benjamin Premack knows environmental law and business law.

My board and I wanted to work with a knowledgable lawyer who was also accessible. We could be working with a big firm downtown but chose to work with Benjamin Premack at this boutique firm because not only is he highly technical, he is personable, and accessible (when he is not out sailing). His attention to detail keeps our legal business on track while we keep our environmental business on track.

Paul Premack stands out from other attorneys

Recently, I was searching for an attorney to help my wife and I prepare a will and get our estate together. I found Attorney Paul Premack, who I felt stood out from all the other attorneys. He was not only a highly rated and well known local attorney, but he has also been nationally recognized for several years. What moved me the most was that, from my research, he seemed to be an advocate for the elderly for most of his career. As a senior citizen, I was very comfortable that I had found the right attorney for us.

Best office of lawyers in town

I have worked with your office for years. I have worked with other attorneys. Everything from the phone calls to the greeting at the door, to the way the attorney works with me is amazing. I am amazed. He is the best lawyer in town for the type of work you do.

Special Attention

I came to Mr. Premack with the knowledge just that I needed more than a straight will. He walked me through living trust, living will, medical Powers of attorney, durable power of attorney, the will itself and other documents that would be necessary towards the end of my life and for my children. He even helped with no hesitation the addition of a special bequest just in case I wasn't able to make it to a certain period in my children's life. With his help I know that my family will be well cared for if something happens.

Thorough, meticulous, highly competent

Benjamin Premack's work for our small business has consistently exceeded our expectations. He has professionally handled contract work, negotiations, insurance mediation, environmental representation, employment issues, and more. We would recommend him in a heartbeat. 

Letter of Recommendation

This letter is to recommend Paul Premack to anyone who is seeking professional Estate Planning. I felt very comfortable with him, because he was meticulous and patient with my several questions. He has an outstanding experience and knowledge in every aspect of Estate Planning. I would not hesitate to recommend Paul Premack for your legal advice concerning your Estate Planning. 

Knowledgeable on the law, and a good communicator

Our non-profit coalition worked with Benjamin Premack to review and update our organizational bylaws. As an attorney, Mr. Premack was very knowledgeable about both state law, and best practices. He was a good listener, which helped him develop language that was both legally sound, and would work well with our organizational culture and administrative capacity. And he was a good communicator, coming to our board meeting and patiently explaining the impacts of the proposed changes to a large group with a wide variety of opinions. We had an excellent experience, and would recommend Benjamin Premack to any organization looking for thoughtful legal support.

Top notch legal assistance

Mr. Premack has been fantastic to work with during a stressful time for my family. He is clearly the best attorney I have ever worked with; very patient, professional, and helped us in record time to replace parental wills, POAs, etc. I highly recommend him if you need assistance or just have questions on elder law or estate planning. I will return to him as the “go-to” attorney in this field, His office manager is also extremely professional and kind. Thank you for all your help, my family is most grateful. 

Happy to have found Benjamin Premack

I was referred to Benjamin Premack by a fellow attorney who had a conflict of interest. During my initial consultation with Benjamin, he listened carefully to my legal challenges and came up with a workable, made to order and realistic plan to address these matters, and bring them to a favorable conclusion. A plan that confirmed that he is an excellent listener. In the course of the following six months, I was very favorably impressed with Benjamin’s focus on results rather than on obstacles. Benjamin is very hands on, practical and no-nonsense. His communication skills, timeliness and follow through are exemplary. I hold his professionalism in high esteem and would definitely engage him again should another matter require counsel. 

We gladly recommend Ben!

Ben has handled the legal affairs of our game studio for over a year, including helping us incorporate, drafting independent contractor and rev share agreements, and providing general legal counsel. We've found him affordable, efficient, communicative, and overall wonderful. We happily recommend him to anyone who asks us who we use for legal assistance. 


Paul Premack is an exceptional attorney. He helped us update my mother-in-law's will and more. The knowledge he has is incredible! I highly recommend him for your senior planning needs!!

Last Will and Testament

Paul Premack did a thorough and profession job transposing our wishes into a Last Will and Testament. He explained each provision and reviewed the document before having the signatures witnessed. During this process, he was personable and friendly -- an important component when discussing personal matters.

Top Tier Legal Services

The Premack's provided a fully satisfying experience from beginning to end. Their offices are secure and the atmosphere set by Ruthie is inviting and comforting. Her in-depth knowledge of their services indicate she and Paul are clearly aligned with their knowledge, and applications of the law with respect to not only elder care law, but general law as well. They collect the details of your needs prior to meeting to ensure your time with them is fully utilized to achieve the tasks at hand and they are punctual meeting set appointments and timelines for delivery of legal services. Paul displays a level of meticulous attention to detail that is unsurpassed. We needed several legal orders executed quickly to include general power of attorney, medical power of attorney, medical directive (formerly living will), last will and testament, and legal guardianship for my Mother and each was executed to perfection. They will even ensure your pets (by name) are included in your estate if you desire. The detailed explanation by line item for each document executed was thorough and at an understandable level so no one left wondering, "What the heck did we just sign?" Follow-up post provision of services again ensured we were comfortable and knew what we needed to do next. I provide my strongest personal positive endorsement of their services. 

Quality Estate Planning, Reasonable Prices

My husband and I always encounter two comforting situations upon entering Paul Premack's office. Ruthie Premack, Paul's wife, is a very warm, friendly and genuinely positive person who greets us on our arrival. She invites us to sit in the very comfortable and inviting waiting room which makes my husband and me feel like we are visiting a neighbor's home. More often than not, I'm disappointed that Paul is so punctual. I enjoy Ruthie's uplifting personality and would like to visit with her longer.

What I find unusual is that Paul comes out to the waiting room to greet us. He addresses each of us by name and then escorts us to his office. My first impression is always, what a neat, organized and clean desk. Not cluttered with legal papers, awards and pictures. As business is conducted, Paul may mention my deceased family members by name. They were the reason my husband and I originally consulted with and hired Paul as our estate attorney over 12 years ago.

We always have the impression that we are Paul's only clients. He takes a very personal interest in our legal welfare and always gives advice based on the most current legal statutes. He knows his stuff, translates it into language we can understand and patiently answers all of our questions. All costs are discussed up front. After reviewing our case, Paul outlined how much it would cost to complete the necessary documents along with his consultation fee. He listed and reviewed the specific work required to revise and update our estate documents. We were pleasantly surprised at the cost of his legal services. It is evident that Paul is more concerned about offering quality estate planning at a reasonable price than refurnishing his office.

In the past 12 years of our client-attorney relationship, my husband and I have always left Paul's office feeling secure in knowing that our estate planning is up to date and will survive frivolous legal challenges upon our incapacitation or death.

Once I went to probate court with Paul representing me as my attorney. It was an honor to have him as my counselor. I could tell by the way the judge related to him that he is a highly respected attorney. Paul and Ruthie are not only warm and friendly but knowledgeable, efficient and highly ethical. My husband and I recommend their services without hesitation or reservation.  

Estate Planning and Elder Law

Paul Premack has been my family's legal advisor and estate planner for several years. He answers all of our questions and broaches further topics relevant to our evolving financial status, age, and physical and mental health. He always ensures that our legal documents are appropriate and current. His manner is consistently professional and patient. The office itself is comfortable and secure rather than intimidating and is most ably run by Office Manager Ruthie Premack. < br/> Mr. Premack’s experience and knowledge are well-known as evidenced by his book, The Senior Texan Legal Guide, his column in the San Antonio Express News, and his speeches/presentations. We had the privilege of attending one of his presentations at a local community; it was truly informative and extremely well received. It was a talk that not surprisingly prompted a lengthy, lively Q&A period. We plan to continue seeking counsel and guidance from Mr. Premack for the foreseeable future. We would recommend him to anyone in search of an excellent professional in elder law. 

Family Estate Plan Updates

Paul Premack's review of and update recommendations for our estate plan were positive and professional. He listened to every detail we presented and then followed with clear and concise guidance for what we needed to do to satisfy our plan goals. Just a few days after the initial consult, our revised documents were ready for signatures. At that meeting, we were impressed with Paul's personal attention to every written detail. His knowledge and presentation style left us comfortable and confident that we had selected the right attorney. Also, Paul's home-like office environment added to our overall satisfying experience. Further, the office manager's personal attention to our comfort needs was definitely appreciated. To add to our already great experience, as we prepared to leave the office, we were advised that the Paul Premack Law Office had made a donation for a tree to be planted in our name at a habitat protection project--nice touch! Well done Paul Premack Law Office, and thank you. 

Elder Law, Estate Planning

I found out about Paul Premack doing a search for elder law + trusts. In there I found his writings on elder law and trusts in which he writes a column for the San Antonio Express News. I chose him as my attorney because I felt I knew him after reading his columns and purchasing his book, The Senor Texan Legal Guide Texas Elder Law. He is highly experienced and did very well in communicating with me without making me feel inferior. He explained and cleared up my confusion on certain terms. I was very comfortable in his office and his business manager built a rapport with me. It is all about building a relationship with clients. I would definitely recommend this high caliber, knowledgeable and experienced attorney. I rate Mr. Premack as a 5 STAR (Excellent)

12/1/15 I am moving to San Antonio. I need to update my estate planning. I did my research. I was given the names of 2 attorneys in San Antonio. I wanted a CELA, I wanted experience. I wanted expertise. I wanted my attorney to know the answers to unexpected questions. I wanted my attorney to be up to date on all laws pertaining to estate planning. I wanted to be able to understand my attorney and the documents I buy from him. I bought books. Paul Premack’s were the most comprehensive and clear. I read on the net, found his articles in the San Antonio Express-News and saw how he could clearly answer the questions of many types of people. After weeks, maybe months, of searching I decided to work with Paul Premack. Best decision. LD
12/1/15 Your office is so comfortable. Inviting. Pleasant. Not at all like a law office. I feel like I am at home with the interior design and the art. LD
