I want to say the whole process we went through was nothing I expected. It was better! Justin was attentive to our questions, comments and concerns. He answered all of them on a level that Kathie and I could understand. This was a very important accomplishment in our lives that needed to be done, and it was very easy to take care of. I would and will point all my friends seeking this service to Justin without hesitation. It was simple, and it took a load off our minds and hearts as well. Thank you, Justin for the job you’ve done.
My husband and I had been talking about getting our will updated and putting an estate plan together so our family would know exactly what to do and not have to worry after we're gone. We were invited, by a friend, to attend a dinner workshop on estate planning - just what we needed! This is where we met Justin Crain with Crain & Wooley. We made an appointment to see him and began putting our plan together. Mr. Crain and his staff were extremely efficient and kept us on track. He was detailed and thorough in explaining the steps we needed to take and how to implement them. We wholeheartedly recommend Justin Crain and his firm.
We can recommend Mr. Crain to anyone thinking of planning their estate. After attending his seminar, we knew that had to have professional guidance in planning our estate. After working with Mr. Crain, we feel secure that our portfolio is the way it should be, and that if there should be any changes we can call on him. Thank you to you and your staff!
I would like to thank Justin Crain and his staff for their diligence in helping us establish a plan to protect our assets, and make the process easier for our heirs going forward. Justin and his staff patiently explained the pros and cons of a will versus a trust, which helped us make a intelligent decision that was right for our specific needs. We would highly recommend Justin for anyone in need of estate planning.
My wife and I recently completed a family living trust and related documentation with Jacob Wooley, an estate planning attorney. Mr. Wooley was entirely professional and through in his handling of our affairs and patiently answered every questions and concerns that we had. We are very satisfied with his efforts on our behalf and take comfort in knowing our family now has an added level of estate planning preparation. We recommend Mr. Wooley without reservation to anyone who need estate planning advice.
Jacob is easy to work with. He is knowledgeable and compassionate. A great sense of humor makes him fun! Great job!
Attorney Justin Crain impressed me with his through knowledge of the laws involved with estate planning, wills, etc. I found this firm when I attended a dinner seminar on estate planing. Attorney Crain's presentation was point on, easy to understand, and he listens will to your concerns and questions. Attorney Crain completed my estate plan, and I am thoroughly pleased with his services.
"I would like to take a few minutes and express my sincere thanks to you and your wonderful staff for preparing accurate and complete trust documentation that my wife and myself wanted to be prepared. We will definitely recommend your specialty to our friends and family at every occasion. I will be in touch with you as further legal needs may arise. Thank you all again."
"We knew a little about Living Trusts, but when we attended Jacob’s seminar we gained a greater understanding of the benefits of having our own Living Trust. Jacob’s explanations make it very easy to understand. Once we began the process of putting together our Trust we discovered Jacob to be very personable and professional. The entire process went quickly and flawlessly. The thing that impressed us the most was Jacob’s easy-to-talk-to personality and how he is always available and willing to answer our numerous questions. Jacob also helped Barbara’s parents complete some work on their Trust and even went to the hospital where her dad was a patient and unable to go to Jacob’s office. We recommend to anyone looking to create will or a trust or update an existing trust to contact Jacob. You will not be disappointed.”

“We are glad we attended Justin Crain’s Lewisville presentation last October. We had a Living Trust in place at the time, but felt it would be beneficial to have Justin review it. Indeed, we could do better. We found Justin to be thorough, considerate, and knowledgeable. He rewrote our Living Trust and put in place a trust for the benefit of one of our children. Justin always answered all questions promptly, thoroughly and with precision. He responded to all messages in a timely manner. Even after the documents were executed. The “Attorney for Life” feature of Justin’s firm will greatly benefit my wife and I as well as our heirs. We highly recommend Justin Crain for anyone needing Estate planning.”
“Being a senior citizen – I needed to get my affairs in order (Will, DNR, Power of Attorney, etc). Justin Crain was very helpful in understanding. He was very detailed and efficient. I was very pleased with the results.”
“I met Justin Crain at an informational seminar on estate planning in December 2016. The session provided an excellent overview of estate planning with enough detail to explain the process without overwhelming the audience. As a result of the seminar, I booked an appointment with Mr. Crain. There were no surprises or hidden fees at the actual appointment. It was just as he said it would be. Mr. Crain was very patient and explained each document, what was required, and why. He did not rush me through the process and I felt comfortable taking as much time as needed. I read every document in the package – about 100 pages – before signing. I have my estate notebook, as mentioned in the informational seminar, catered to my specific needs. It was a pleasure working with Mr. Crain and his staff.”
“We are just a typical retired couple trying to make the best of our retirement on a very meager Social Security Income. When God chooses to take us from this Earth, we have wishes and desires concerning our Estate and our children. Unfortunately, we procrastinated on getting our affairs in order because of expense, and it really just seemed like too big a deal! Then we received an invitation to a free lunch and seminar. We needed some direction and answers to our questions and of course, a free lunch! There we met Justin T. Crain, Attorney with Thomas Walters, PLLC, and a homegrown West Texas boy graduating from Texas Tech in Lubbock. Being from Lubbock ourselves, we just really clicked with Justin. He seems very sincere about wanting to help us to fulfill our needs and wishes concerning our Estate and he is willing to work with us financially. He has walked us through a simple process and has provided us with an affordable customized plan to fit our needs and desires. Thanks to Justin’s expertise and his willingness to listen and spend time with us, we now have peace of mind that the handling of our Estate will not be a burden for our children and our desires will be met. We have placed our trust and confidence in Justin and will highly recommend him and his services to everyone!”
“Justin was professional, knowledgeable and personable and made our estate planning easy and very organized. He was flexible in creating our will quickly and explained the legaleze of the trust process. We would recommend his services to friends and family.”
“We first met Justin at a lunch seminar and were impressed at his review of current Texas laws governing wills. Coming from New York via Florida our documents needed updating. Justin provided clear direction on how to proceed. The drafts were comprehensive and timely. We had a final sit down at signing going over all our questions. We recommend his program to all.”
"We appreciate your efforts on our behalf. We feel good to have the matter completed i.e. establishing a Trust. You were kind and patient and helpful. We felt confident that everything was proper. Also, that we could trust you to look after our interest in this matter. If we have questions in the future we will not hesitate to call you and may the Lord bless you."
“Getting this trust is the best thing in 48 years we have done. We now have peace of mind knowing our daughters will have no question or problem upon our passing. All information is very clear of what we want. Justin made it very easy for us with no work on our part except getting him the papers he asked for."
“Pat and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for assisting us through the estate planning process! We had been postponing it because we thought it would be difficult and time-consuming. However, you and your staff were available for questions and we appreciated how quick and simple you made the experience! Again, thank you so much!”
“The relationship with Justin Crain began when I received a mailing advertising a seminar on wills and trusts. I had already decided that I was going to have to create a trust since probating a will was time consuming and expensive. I attended Justin’s seminar and by the end of it, I decided to proceed with the trust and promptly made the initial appointment. Justin explained in detail how the trust would work and what he needed from me. He made every effort to explain the process and quickly answered my questions. When the final documents were signed, I felt a great sense of relief since I had delayed far too long. In a nutshell, Justin and his staff did a great job. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an estate planning attorney.”
“Justin, Jan and I would like, very much, to thank you for your time and effort in creating our Trust. Your professionalism and ability to explain things as we went through the process were phenomenal. You made what could have been a confusing and tedious process seamless and easy. You and your staff were, in all regards, professional, congenial and extremely helpful.”
“Mr. Crain made the process of settling our estate plan easy. We were able to put the plan in place, including all the document creation and property transfers, in the space of 30 days. Our goal was to make the transfer of our estate to our children as painless as possible, when the time came, and he succeeded beautifully.”
“Mr. Crain has been very responsive and thorough to all my questions. He is knowledgeable to all things related to estate planning. I look forward to continuing to have him as my attorney for any future estate planning items.”
"Our estate planning needs were a much discussed topic between my wife and I, but, like most things on the list-of-things-that-need-to-be-done-eventually, not much progress was being made toward that aim. We weren’t sure of which legal specialty we needed to consult for the planning we needed to do, and, in fact, did not know what precisely needed to be done. And, we didn’t know any lawyers aside from those we were acquainted with through business relationships. Fortunately, we took advantage of an invitation to dinner to hear Justin Crain speak on the subject of estate planning and were immediately impressed by his professionalism and the depth of knowledge he brought to bear on the subject. After a brief chat with Justin following his formal presentation, we were more than comfortable with his expertise. We made the decision to engage him to complete our planning. Justin completed the work in a timely and efficient manner and we couldn’t be happier with the result. We look forward to working with Justin in the future if our situation changes or estate planning needs evolve."
"Doug and I first met Mr. Crain at one of his dinner seminars. He presented information regarding estate planning in a way that was easily understood by the “lay” person. Mr. Crain made sure that he listened to all of our needs and requests that we wanted to be in our trust. After our trust was completed, Doug and I have comfort that our children have a plan in place to handle our estate."
"(I) was pleased with the service and attention to detail. The office staff was also very effective and made us feel welcomed. A great experience."
"Jacob walked us through the advantages of setting up the trust. While doing the Trust we took care of our Will, Power of Attorney and a lot of other things we hadn’t considered. Jacob is easy to talk to and down to earth explanations of what the advantages were for our heirs."
