Medicaid Benefit Eligibility Numbers 2014

Farrell & Pak PLLC is a law firm located in Austin, TX dedicated to Elder Law, Medicaid and Estate Planning, Asset Protection and the long term care needs for elder Texans and their families.

Services we provide routinely include:

  • Medicaid planning, application and appeals

  • Power of Attorney Agent and Guardianship advisory
  • Asset preservation planning and implementation
  • Legal  and financial planning for long term care

We also look for issues of concern for older persons or their representatives with respect to insurance, housing, long term care, employment, and retirement. We would be happy to meet with you and your family to discuss these issues. 

H. Clyde Farrell founded this practice in 1993 and Bliss Burdett Pak joined as a partner in April 2010. Farrell & Pak PLLC serves as counsel to elderly Texans, their caregivers, power-of-attorney agents and families. Their focus is on financing long-term care, the estate planning implications when long-term care is required and coordination of private insurance, public benefits such as Medicaid and other resources available to cover medical and other costs of care.

The goal of H. Clyde Farrell of Farrell & Pak is to enable families to provide the best quality of life and appropriate care for their loved ones. The outcome we seek is peace of mind for caregivers, based on the knowledge that they have planned adequately for their family's legal and financial needs.

Today, elder Texans and their families face increasingly complex decisions about legal and financial matters, particularly those related to health care:

  • How do I avoid impoverishment if my spouse needs long-term care?
  • How can I protect my assets if I need long-term care?
  • What programs or benefits are available to cover my long-term care costs?
  • How can I get help with the Medicaid application process?
  • What should I do about a will, a living will and powers of attorney?
  • Do I need a trust? Do I need long-term care insurance?
  • How can I plan for care for my child with a disability when I am gone?
In our Elder Law practice, we provide legal and financial services frequently needed by older persons and their families. Many of our clients face expensive medical needs, such as long-term care in their own home, in an Assisted Living Facility or in a nursing home. We help them and their families conserve their assets as much as possible, while seeking the best possible care in the most desirable environment. Providing peace of mind for our clients is one of our foremost goals.
