We've used Mr. Cohen fit estate planning for 2 relatives. He hosts and teaches free seminars on what his clients communicate to him that they are interested in. He and his staff make everything easy to understand. Other lawyers tend to overuse words they are familiar with (since they use the terms every day). Me Cohen uses analogies and simple terms to communicate with the regular civilian

Very Happy
I can't say enough positive things about Michael Cohen. I live in Georgia with a family member in Texas and needed to get a lot accomplished during our visit. I provided an agenda of items that were needed and he and his staff met every need and I'm so appreciative. For those going through this process with a loved one, Michael Cohen is a great partner through the process. In response, to those that feel the cost were high... I can only speak for myself, but I went in with all the items that I needed identified ahead of time and the cost were within reason compared to other attorneys. If you don't have a plan you can literally talk for days about all the scenarios you and your family could face and that will raise your spending. Good luck!

Michael B. Cohen
Michael Cohen has a vast knowledge and expertise in Elder Care Law. He was highly recommended to me by two lawyers who greatly respect his work. It is his passion, as one can see in consultation meetings w/him. He is constantly updating his knowledge of all the Medicare & Medicaid Laws in Texas, as well as in other states, as the laws change continually. Michael is a teacher by nature wanting all the family members involved to understand all the pertinent information/facts that might apply to your individual case. In dealing with an elder, Michael's compassion for his or her situation is truly evident, not only in his words, but also by his actions. I highly recommend this Elder Care Attorney. I trusted him to complete a living trust for my beloved mother. To me, honesty and trust is everything when choosing an Elder Care Attorney to help our aging parents. I recommend Michael B. Cohen without hesitation to you.
