Francisco Flores and his husband, Jeff Cook leaned on Legal Hospice when Jeff stopped receiving his retirement and benefits from his former employer. With the help of Legal Hospice, the former employer was required to make all back payments for lost pay and Jeff maintains his retirement pay through today. Legal Hospice of Texas is honored to be associated with Francisco Flores in launching Fashion CITED and thanks him for his untiring efforts in making it a reality.
