Daniel Shawn Council, Esq.
Shawn Council practices Elder Law, Bankruptcy, Criminal Law and Business Litigation in the North Texas area. He takes pride in helping seniors determine the most efficient means of funding their long term care needs and ensuring they understand the plans he puts forth. In some instances that means utilizing state benefits, while in others it may mean determining the proper coverage for long-term care insurance. Whatever the outcome, Shawn takes the time to listen to his client and their family to understand his or her personal financial goals and values. Then he develops a plan based on the client's individual comfort level and resources.
Before law school, Shawn played music professionally across Texas and still enjoys playing and teaching guitar today. However, while music will always be a hobby, Shawn decided to dedicate his professional life to helping seniors resolve long-term care and elder law issues during what can be a very worrying and confusing period in their lives. Shawn's goal is to try and relieve some of these stresses and worries by helping to put a firm plan in place to provide for their care when and if the need should arise.
Coming from a modest upbringing himself, Shawn understands how important it is to preserve as much of a family's hard-earned resources for future generations as possible. No family should have to become impoverished in order to fund long-term care.
