About Alison

Learn Alison’s areas of practice.

Alison Packard attended Brigham Young University Law School, where she met and married a fellow classmate, Dan Packard. They went to classes together, studied together and finished law school on the same day, both graduating with honors.

As Alison was preparing to take the Texas bar exam, her life changed dramatically when she gave birth to a beautiful, special needs child, Angela. Angela was born 13 weeks prematurely, and suffered a massive brain hemorrhage during delivery which caused several physical and mental disabilities. Alison immediately postponed her plans to take the bar exam and devoted all her efforts to taking care of Angela and her three other children. Needless to say, life has been very busy trying to juggle the enormous demands created by Angela’s disabilities, the law practice and the needs of the other family members. Alison’s life has been a rewarding but difficult journey–full of struggles, disappointments, triumphs and great joy.

Alison has now been licensed to practice law for 20 years and has helped litigate some very substantial cases worth millions of dollars; however, her real passion is helping people with disabilities. Today, Alison focuses her practice solely on helping clients who have disabled loved ones. She understands and loves her clients. She knows what it is like to fight for a special needs child. She knows how complicated and confusing the government bureaucracy can be and how important it is for disabled individuals to qualify for public benefits. She has spent her life in that system and understands it. Alison, therefore, does special needs planning, enabling parents to provide financial resources for their disabled children while retaining financial eligibility for government programs. Her practice involves special needs trusts (first party self-funded, pooled, and third party trusts), wills, guardianships, powers of attorney, joint decision making agreements, and child support modifications related to disability determinations.

Allison Packard
My husband and I contacted Ms. Packard for help probating my husband's brother's will. Allison went far beyond helping us not only with the probate but also helped us with re-locating our special-needs nephew in an extremely timely and proficient manner. She has been extremely professional and knowledgeable, and has consistently stayed in contact with us throughout the issues we had until they were concluded.
