Experienced Elder Law Attorneys

Deciding to speak to an attorney about protecting an elderly loved one is not easy. Certain conversations can be difficult to have, and it can be hard to come to terms with the idea of a loved one losing capacity.

At The Johnson Firm, P.C. in Richardson, Texas, we know the importance of putting family first. As a father-daughter firm, family means a lot to us, too. We not only have the experience to help you put important legal protections in place for your loved one, but we do so in a compassionate way.

The Tools To Protect Your Loved One

Whether you are planning for the possibility of long-term care or you need protection in place more quickly, our attorneys are prepared to find a solution. We handle many aspects of elder law, including:

  • Powers of attorney: Whether for health care, finances or both, establishing a power of attorney can help ensure that decisions are made for you or your loved one when you need them.
  • Special needs trusts: A special needs trust offers important financial protections for those with disabilities or other special needs.
  • Guardianships: Establishing a guardianship can protect both adults and minor children. We can help you determine if it's right for your loved one.
  • Medicaid planning: To qualify for Medicaid, you must meet certain income, asset and other requirements. We can help you plan to meet them when it is necessary.
  • Preplanning: When possible, planning in advance for the possibility of needing long-term care is the best way to ensure peace of mind.

Planning In Times Of Emergency

Sometimes people end up in difficult situations suddenly and unexpectedly. If you or a loved one needs immediate help, we will be ready to take swift action to put protections in place.

Helping Our Veterans Get The Care They Need
