Katherine Jackson is doing well, her lawyer said after meeting the Jackson family matriarch.
Perry Sanders Jr said their meeting on Thursday was long and productive, adding he will reveal more of their discussion later.
It is the first time Mr Sanders has been able to speak to his client in person in several days.
Ms Jackson went more than a week without talking to her grandchildren and was reported missing.
She was with relatives in Arizona, but most people, including Mr Sanders, were not allowed to visit or call her.
Mr Sanders says Ms Jackson laughed when she heard about reports she had suffered a stroke.
Those reports were prompted by a letter signed by five of her children calling on executors of Michael Jackson's estate to resign.
