The Livens Law Firm Law Firm Overview

Working for Your Peace of Mind
Estate Planning | Elder Law | Asset Protection

The Livens Law Firm offers comprehensive planning services, legal counsel and representation that enable clients to protect the product of their lives' works and pass it on to the next generation. For more than 20 years, we have provided peace of mind to clients through sophisticated but affordable estate planning, Medicaid planning and veterans benefit planning.

We are more than drafters of documents. Our clients hire us to be family counselors, to express their wishes and values for posterity, and to protect their hard-earned wealth with aggressive strategies proven to withstand government scrutiny and would-be creditors.

Our clients include individuals or their caregivers, young couples and retirees, clients wealthy enough to trigger estate taxes, and those struggling with how to stretch their assets and afford nursing home care.

A Reputable Resource for Medicaid and VA Benefits Assistance

Whether you are seeking information for your loved one or you are a social worker working with elderly people, The Livens Law Firm is considered a resource center throughout the state for Medicaid and VA benefits. We have three former Medicaid caseworkers that work full time for our firm, and they have a combined total of 50 years of experience regarding Medicaid and governmental benefits. Last year our firm successfully completed hundreds of Medicaid and VA applications, and we had 100 percent success on every case.

Mr. Livens is an accredited lawyer for VA benefits, and last year he taught more than 200 social workers and nursing home staff about Medicaid qualifications through continuing education courses. He has authored three books on these topics: Generations: Planning Your Legacy; Ways and Means — Understanding Retirement Plans; and Love, Money and Control. He is also a CPA with 25 years of experience in estate tax, income tax, gift tax and business planning. Fort Worth, Texas magazine has named him as one of the top estate planning attorneys in the DFW area, and The Livens Law Firm is endorsed by the AARP.
