  • Finally, we highly recommend Crain & Wooley to anyone interested in the development of an estate plan.

    When me and my wife were invited to attend a Crain & Wooley estate planning presentation, we had no knowledge of the process. Since we had discussed the need to plan for eventual demise, we decided to work with the firm to establish a Revocable Living Trust. We thank attorneys Justin Crain & Shelly Joyner for their advice, counsel, dedication, and patience throughout this journey. Miss Joyner addressed all of our concerns and questions to our satisfaction, and we hope to work with her in the future. Finally, we highly recommend Crain & Wooley to anyone interested in the development of an estate plan.

  • You (Shelly) and the staff at Crain & Wooley were so very easy to work with.

    (Shelly) I want to thank you for working with me to prepare my Living Trust documents and portfolio. I’ve meant to do this for a long time. I even ordered a do-it-yourself kit online; however, I realized this was too important to attempt it myself. I’m very thankful a friend invited me to attend a Crain & Wooley seminar to hear the presentation on the many benefits of developing a Living Trust portfolio in lieu of probating my will upon my death. I wanted to lessen the burden on my children when my time comes to go home to my Lord. The Living Trust method will be much easier and considerably cheaper in the long run when considering the extra expense of hiring an attorney to probate my will, not to mention the months it would take to even get on a probate court docket.

    You (Shelly) and the staff at Crain & Wooley were so very easy to work with. I truly appreciate you taking the time to explain each step of the process to me and my children in a manner we could understand. I know I made the right decision, and I can truly say I can sleep better knowing everything is taken care of.

  • Finally got an estate plan after years of procrastination, mainly from fear…fear of the process. The fear disappeared as we had our initial meeting with Shelly.

    Finally got an estate plan after years of procrastination, mainly from fear…fear of the process. The fear disappeared as we had our initial meeting with Shelly. After a few minutes, Shelly had collected the information necessary to begin the estate plan. A few days later, we received the plan to go over and make any changes. We met (via) video call to have any questions answered, and they were answered in a very understandable way leave no doubt about the meaning of the verbiage in the plan. We mad an appointment for the following week to sign. The signing was actually kinda fun…Shelly is really funny!

  • We would recommend Shelly Joyner as well as Crain & Wooley.

  • Justin made it very easy.
    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. Thank you very much, Sincerely Mike and Carolyn Dickey

  • Extremely efficient and kept us on track.

    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. The plan was prepared in a timely manner and another review done at the time we signed the final papers. Everything is contained in one large binder - no searching for documents!

    We wholeheartedly recommend Justin Crain and his firm as an estate planning option for those who are looking to prepare their plans.

  • We could not be more pleased with the final results
    We attended an estate planning seminar hosted by Justin Crain – which was excellent. We were impressed by his presentation, information and professionalism. We signed up to use this firm for our planning needs. Justin, Joy and Brianna were all helpful, efficient, courteous, professional and do their jobs well. They returned all phone calls and emails quickly. We could not be more pleased with the final results and highly recommend them to others.

  • He knows his stuff and is a credit to his profession.
    Justin was professional and worked with us to "blend" our will from another state to (an updated plan) to meet Texas Law. He knows his stuff and is a credit to his profession. He explained in detail so we understood. He offered many helpful suggestions that we would not have thought of. He was always on time. His fees are very reasonable. Everything was delivered on time and very organized. Our trustee/executor should have an easy time. We recommend they call Justin. Brianna Collins and Joy Crosby were great. Files were posted promptly and securely. It was a pleasure. Thanks!

  • Our needs were put first, our opinions valued, & our doubts reassured.
    (The) Crain & Wooley firm recently completed our estate planning documents. The whole experience from beginning to end went smoother and much better than we could have ever imagined.

  • We now have peace of mind.
    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!

  • It was simple, and it took a load off our minds and hearts as well.
    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.

  • He did an outstanding job in a timely manner.
    Justin Crain did my trust recently, and I felt that he did an outstanding job in a timely manner. He was an excellent listener and made me feel much more at ease about what I thought would be a daunting task. He was very thorough and made sure that we took care of every last detail. I highly recommend Mr. Crain when it's time to make such important decisions and put together a trust

  • Impressed by his professionalism and depth of knowledge.
    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.

  • I firmly believe we made the right choice
    My wife and I just completed a comprehensive estate plan that was drafted by Justin Crain. The process went smoothly and proceeded in a timely manner. Justin and his staff were wonderful people to work with and were ready to spend the time needed to answer all of our questions throughout the process. By the time our trust was completed, we were confident that our estate would be passed along to our children and grandchildren in just the manner we desired. Both Susan and I firmly believe we made the right choice in having Justin draft our estate planning documents. Without hesitation, we would turn to Justin in the future when matters related to estate planning arise.
