    Penny represents guardians in the administration of guardianship matters. Penny also serves as attorney ad litem or guardian ad litem for proposed wards when appointed by the Court.

    When someone dies, that person has left behind an estate, which is the legal term for everything that person owned. An estate can be as little as a person's clothes or can also include substantial assets, like real estate, investments, cars, boats and so on. Some estates are very small and "handling the estate" may not require any legal action. Any property with a written title, like a house or a car, will require action in probate court.

Knowledgeable, professional, excellent
I have complete confidence in Penny. She is exceedingly knowledgeable, absolutely professional - an exceptional lawyer. She cares about me as a person as well as her client, and helps to calm me when dealing with stressful legal matters. Again, she is an exceptional lawyer, but she is also an amazing person. I have recommended her services to others and will continue to do so.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Jan 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Penny has been an incredible help to me in my practice, and is always available to answer any questions I may have. She has a broad set of skills and is an excellent attorney, but even more importantly is a lawyer with integrity and commitment to service. Her military background gives her the ability to talk to people from all walks of life, and she continues her service by coordinating a legal clinic for veterans in Collin County. I cannot recommend her enough."

"I've been very impressed with Penny's great demeanor, ability to get up to speed on a client's issues very quickly, and overall responsiveness to the needs of the client."
