About Me

Ronald
Greening, Attorney and Counsellor at Law, is the
founder of
The Greening Law Firm, P.C. Ron grew up in Houston
and after
earning a B.S.E.E. from the University of Texas at
Austin
in 1969, he worked as an electrical engineer for
three years.
He then earned a JD at the University of South
Carolina School
of Law and has been in active legal practice since
1975, starting
in Washington, D.C. for six years, then working for
two years
in New York on Wall Street before returning home to
central
Texas in 1983. He is a member of the Real Estate,
Probate
& Trust Law Sections of the State Bar of Texas
and the
Probate and Estate Planning Law Section of the
Austin Bar
Association. He is a member and past president of
the American
Association of Trust Estate and Elder Law Attorneys,
a member
of the Texas and National Association of Elder Law
Attorneys
and a member of the Estate Planning Council of
Central Texas.
He is fully licensed by the Texas Supreme Court,
Washington,
D.C. Court of Appeals and various federal courts.
His practice
is limited to estate planning, estate
administration, probate
and Medicaid planning.


 


Ron continues to be
active
in Westlake Hills Presbyterian Church, WHPC.org, on
the Board
of Directors and Secretary of the Board of the
Georgetown
Community Foundation, GACF.org, member of the Rotary
Club
of Austin, Rotary-Austin.org, the Texas Longhorn
Breeders
Association, TLBAA.org, on the Advisory Board of the
Travis
County Retired and Senior Volunteer Program,
RSVPAustin.org,
and other community and professional organizations.
Ron lives
on Lake Travis and has a herd of one Longhorn steer
who lives
in his backyard. You can see a likeness of Coffee,
the Longhorn,
at Ron’s office on Williams Drive next to his
Farmer’s Fountain
and another likeness in front of his Austin office.


 


Ron has advocated
the education
of the public and financial planning professionals
to help
people make informed decisions relating to their
estate planning,
including the use of trusts as a proven way to
protect families
from the expense and delay of guardianship and
probate and
to minimize federal estate taxes. His motto: Proper
Planning
Adds Predictability.


 


Mr. Greening is
committed
to researching and preparing high quality,
tax-sensitive estate
plans. His mission in law is to help people
accomplish their
estate planning goals, and to take the mystery out
of the
estate planning process. His clients have their
estate plans
explained in straight-forward language that they and
their
families can understand. Good planning avoids
needless court
interference, public records, attorney fees and
government
interference when an estate is settled.


 


Ron teaches
workshops for
the public as well as accredited continuing
education seminars
for C.P.A.’s, nursing home administrators,
attorneys, C.F.P.’s
and other financial advisors. He provides free
initial office
consultations regarding estate planning.

    I have known Ron for over five years and had the privilege to work with him as a member of a national organization for estate and elder law attorneys. Ron is adept at combining legal solutions with deep knowledge of IRS regulations for the benefit of his clients. I have benefited personally from his insights about how to work with large, complex estates. He is one of the top estate planning attorneys I have ever met. I highly recommend his services.
