About me

What makes our firm unique is the fact that we are a father-daughter legal team.  I am Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Estate Planning & Probate Law.  I focus my practice in the area of Estate Planning and Probate Law as well as Elder Law.  We help people plan their estate to maximize asset protection while they are alive and then pass it efficiently when they die.   We are VA accredited and help Veterans get qualified for Aid and Attendance benefits to help pay for their long-term needs. We also handle probate matters, trust administration and guardianships.  In my spare time I enjoy hiking, camping, golf, and water skiing.
