I recommend Frances Bennett
I hired Frances 1-3 years ago.
Frances handled my Estate Planning matter.
I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.
Frances Bennett has been advising my family and me for more than a dozen years. She has competently and adeptly helped my husband and me plan and navigate the often choppy “estate waters” surrounding the sale of our business. Frances has also compassionately and professionally guided me through the necessary decisions I needed to make after the death of my husband; and has counseled me as to what I would need to do to protect my assets should I remarry. She is always in my court. I sleep well at night because I am secure in the knowledge that not only is she highly skilled at her craft, but in addition has my family’s and my best interests at heart.
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I endorse this lawyer. Frances Bennett is one of the most outstanding lawyers in her field both in Austin and in Texas. I have observed her in joint cases and with referrals. I have also seen her diligence in representation of and planning for her clients. In over 20 years of practice, I have rarely seen such a competent attorney who also clearly cares for her clients, their problems and in finding the proper solutions for them. She does not use forms, but tailors client's documents based upon each client's circumstances and family dynamics. All of the clients that I have referred to her are highly complimentary about their experience with Frances and her work for them. I would not trust anyone else for estate planning for myself or my clients.
