About me

My name is Michael Holland, and I’m an Elder Law attorney based in Houston, Texas. As a Houston Elder Law attorney, I help families across Texas. Thank you for taking the time to visit Holland Elder Law online to learn more about what I can do for you.

“I wanted to thank you for helping me get my husband on Medicaid. I could not have gotten him on otherwise. Unlike another attorney I spoke with, you made me feel confident you would do a good job. You kept me up-to-date with the steps you were taking on my behalf which reduced my worry and made me feel very confident. I am resting comfortably now thanks to the work you did for me and my husband.”

“When my wife’s dementia care was too much for me to handle at home, I put her in a nursing home. I turned to Holland Law Firm for guidance. With the help of Michael Holland and his staff, I was able to restructure my savings and preserve my retirement income. The help I received from the firm was invaluable. Their knowledge of the law was first-class and handled in a professional manner. It gave me the peace of mind which I sought. I highly recommend the Holland Law firm for anyone needing assistance in a situation such as mine. -Tad Pruyn

Simply listing my credentials won’t directly reduce the financial and emotional strain of caring for your elderly parents or ailing spouse. Nor will it simplify the complexities of Miller Trusts and Medicaid.

What will help you, though?  Gaining confidence and knowledge.

Confidence comes from knowing I’ve successfully helped hundreds of families just like yours.

Another is discovering how all the pieces of the health care system fit together when you need long-term care. These two pieces alone will make your experience less costly and much less scary. Once you understand how your particular situation relates to the complicated health care and Medicaid rules, it becomes more manageable.

When you understand how your specific situation fits into the broader picture of health care and Medicaid regulations, things start to feel more manageable.

“When I first faced the Medicaid process for my aunt, it felt overwhelming and I was very stressed. I searched a lot for an elderly care attorney and finally found your firm. From the first phone call with Cathy, who made me feel at ease, to working with your team, I felt supported and relieved. You paid attention to every detail, responded quickly, and really cared.

This made the whole experience less stressful. I am truly grateful for the great service and the peace of mind that came with knowing everything was handled well. Your firm did more than I expected, offering help that went far beyond just legal services. -R.A. Walker

The intent of this information is not to necessarily teach you how to “do it yourself.” Medicaid planning without professional help is a bad idea.
