About me

My name is Michael Holland. I’m an Elder Law attorney operating out of Houston, Texas. Thanks for taking the time to visit me online to learn more about Holland Elder Law.

My specialty is helping individuals and families navigate through the complexities of Medicaid, Miller Trusts and Estate Planning. Click here to learn more about how my elder law services can help you.

I also offer guidance about other important legal matters like tax planning, social security claims, Wills, probate and bankruptcy. Normally, this is where you’d expect me to start listing off my various qualifications, and why I’m the absolute best elder law attorney you’ll find in Texas.

But, truthfully, this page isn’t about me.

It’s about you, isn’t it?

Helping you is the reason I’m here. Simply stating my list of qualifications as a Houston Elder Care attorney won’t reduce the bank-breaking costs of caring for your aging mom or dad or ailing spouse. Our membership with the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys won’t somehow make Miller Trusts any less complex. In other words, my qualifications by themselves won’t do much to help you and your family.

Do you know what will help you, though? Confidence and knowledge.

One type of 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.

That’s why I take an educational approach with you here at Holland Elder Law. Your peace of mind is important to me. Helping you understand what lies ahead for you is one of the reasons I created this website. Here you’ll find answers to questions that will give you more confidence in the important care giving decisions you’ll be making soon.

The goal of this site is to help you worry less and to find the right solutions faster.

DISCLAIMER: Please note that nothing on this web site is intended to be taken as legal advice, nor does reading it create an attorney-client relationship. 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. Instead, the goal is to make you better informed about Texas nursing home costs, Medicaid and Miller Trusts so you’ll feel more at ease and confident as you move forward with whichever elder law attorney you choose.
