Houston Estate Planning & Elder Law Firm

Houston, Texas Estate Planning & Elder Law Firm McCulloch & Miller, PLLC Serving Families and Individuals in Houston, Sugar Land, Katy, Missouri City, Clear Lake, The Woodlands and all Throughout the Houston Metro Area

As the largest city in Texas, Houston is home to the most diverse, multigenerational, and aging adult communities. We have some of the best health care and medical care in the world and in turn, Houstonians can safely bet on longer, healthier lives for themselves and their loved ones. What does that mean for traditional estate planning? It means you now must plan for 20-30 years of retirement or disability planning and for many people that concept can seem overwhelming. However, the importance of creating your Houston estate plan cannot be overstated and you do need to begin today. Luckily, we know how to make it simpler on you and your family.

For over 30 years, our partners, Thomas W. McCulloch, JD, CPA, and David W. Miller, JD, have been advocates for aging Americans and our law team prides itself in integrating traditional estate, tax and planning services with a broader and holistic approach to planning. This holistic view helps clients and families identify, access, and pay for quality long-term care services for their aging loved ones so that families may enjoy a higher quality of life while protecting those they love. Here are some of the “need to know” characteristics of our Houston Estate Planning firm:

  1. There is a lot to consider when planning for your future and the future of your loved ones. Our team takes a comprehensive approach to addressing estate planning, tax planning and long-term care planning of aging adults.
  2. We are advocates for individuals, aging adults, and their families. We will take the time to learn your goals, your family dynamics and create a plan with you that best fits those two aspects of your life.
  3. We believe that multigenerational families should plan for their futures and create a life care plan for aging that makes sense for their unique needs. The “sandwich generation” is overloaded right now. While the stress may seem insurmountable, there are ways to plan ahead and manage these challenges through the use of an effective Houston estate plan.
  4. We help educate families by providing complimentary educational workshops that help families focus on their planning goals and objectives.
  5. We help guide families through planning strategies such as asset protection, tax consequences and viable retirement planning. Every family is different, and no one plan is the same. We assist you in knowing all of your options to better protect your values, goals, and legacy, the way YOU want to.

15 Common Estate Planning Mistakes
Houston Estate Planning and Elder Law Attorney Blog
  • life insurance trust
    Many individuals – especially those with children – do not want to think about what would happen to their family if they passed away. Although many people have life insurance to cover the cost of raising a child in the event of their untimely death, they do not think about establishing a trust to hold […]
  • revocable living trust
    In Houston and throughout Texas, living trusts allow property owners to use their assets during their lifetime while ensuring that their assets are securely transferred to their beneficiaries. The legal document is similar to a will in that it allows financial assets and personal property to be passed on to named beneficiaries. However, the terms […]
  • capital gains taxes
    On November 7, 2020, major news networks declared former Vice President Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election. With Biden's election, there is likely to be a shift in many policies, from foreign diplomacy to tax incentives. One area that may soon be altered is an increase in the capital gains tax rate. […]
Client Reviews
★★★★★
"In late February, 2020, I needed to file from out of state for successor Letters Testamentary in Harris County for my father's estate. The attorney I used, Ryan Cook, returned my call promptly, gave me the option of hourly or flat rate fee, explained what would be involved, then let his paralegal and other staff handle most of the contact with me. I worked with Crystal. She was very responsive and tech savvy. As the pandemic hit and communication everywhere was getting difficult and the probate court had limited access, these women continued to stay in touch and help me through the process, with us all working remotely. We were all experiencing a new way of being in the world and all three of them handled it with grace, humanity and efficiency." L.B.

I highly recommend McCulloch and Miller for eldercare issues." B.S.
