About the MCM Estate Planning Firm

An Experienced Team of Knowledgeable Lawyers Taking a Holistic Approach to Estate Planning, Elder Law, and Long-Term Care Planning

At the Houston law firm of McCulloch & Miller, PLLC, we provide comprehensive estate planning. Over the past 40 years, we’ve learned the greatest key to effective estate planning involves listening attentively to our clients’ diverse needs and goals. We strive to foster long-term relationships with our clients by working with them to identify all of their objectives and collaboratively working together to develop a list of effective strategies.

If your parent or aging loved one is in immediate need of long-term care in a nursing home or assisted living facility, or you can foresee such a need in the near future, contact the estate planning attorneys at McCulloch & Miller, PLLC for comprehensive and dependable advice about your options, legal strategies and the practical ways your family can implement them.

Flat Fees, Easy Process Planning

Our goal is to make sure your estate plan agrees with your goals, your family dynamics, and protects your retirement assets. Our estate planning process starts with free workshops and community presentations. We implore prospective clients to learn all they can about their own goals and options so that we can discuss the legal strategies that best fit those needs.

After our complimentary workshops, prospective clients are encouraged to schedule a consultation for a one-on-one discussion with an experienced Houston estate planning attorney. Our estate planning and probate plans are flat fee and we offer flexible payment plans for those on fixed incomes.

Creating Life-Care Plans Through Effective Planning

For some families, trusts , private insurance, and the strategic timing and sequencing of applications can make the appropriate and desired level of care affordable. For other families, the choices might be more difficult. However, we will do everything possible to bring the cost of care within reach so you can avoid the need to sell your loved one’s home in order to pay for residential or full-time in-home care.

Our well-informed attorneys command an impressive knowledge of all areas of estate planning, which enables us to provide your family with the complete picture. As part of the comprehensive suite of services we provide, our lawyers can also assess your existing estate plan to ensure it comports with your current goals.

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 engaged the services of McCulloch & Miller to assist me with the difficult task of navigating Medicaid eligibility requirements for a close family member. I found them to be knowledgeable and thorough. Working with Darby was a pleasure. She took the worry and aggravation of dealing with a government entity off my shoulders. I highly recommend McCulloch and Miller for eldercare issues." B.S.
"We needed assistance with a Medicaid application and McCulloch & Miller were extremely helpful and expedited the paperwork promptly. We also greatly appreciated the professionalism, and caring manner in which Darby handled our case. If you need assistance, we highly recommend this firm!" P.M.
