The elder law firm of Farrell & Johnson PLLC is dedicated to assisting you with your Texas Medicaid, Estate Planning, Probate, Asset Protection and the Long Term Care needs. Farrell & Johnson counsel clients planning for their elder years.
Many clients are facing the need for long-term care and increased medical, nursing or attendant care services in the immediate future, for themselves or for a spouse or parent. Other clients are planning for the future and want to put in place the financial plans and legal authorizations that will enable their wishes to be known and their chosen agents to be fully authorized to handle their affairs if and when they are not able to do so independently.
Today, elder Texans and their families face increasingly complex decisions about legal and financial matters, particularly those related to health care:
Our Elder Law Services Include...
Your Initial Conference
Your initial conference is an information exchange session scheduled for 1.5-two hours. You may meet first with our legal assistant or a law associate to review the questionnaire and organize your information, facts, and figures so that we may understand your situation. Then, you will meet with one of our partners who handles the type of matters involved to discuss your questions, concerns and planning needs.
We have no attorney-client relationship with any person unless and until an attorney-client agreement is signed by you and us. Fees will be set in the attorney-client agreement and are determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the complexity of issues involved.
