Great Experience
Monica made it incredibly easy and simple for me. I had been procrastinating finalizing my will bc I incorrectly thought setting it up to a trust for my daughter would be complicated. Monica was very patient explaining to me all the legal terminology and process. We had an hour consultation, during which she provided me with some common options and scenarios to consider when making my decisions. She gathered all the necessary information and details of my request and then in about a week she had all the documents ready for my review. She set up a time for me to sign all the documents where she arranged for all the witnesses as well. There is no reason to put off taking care and finalizing these documents when you're working with Monica.

A Great Legal Attorney
It was great having Monica Hennessey to handle our estate planning. I have used Monica more than once to handle my estate planning. Monica performed the following legal documents for my wife and me: Will, Statutory Durable Power of Attorney, Declaration of Guardian, Appointment for Disposition of Remains, Directive to Physicians and Family or Surrogates and Appointment for Disposition of Remains. Monica is very personable in communicating with her clients. She is very timely in responding to appointments. She is very thorough in explaining each document and makes sure that you have a great understanding of them prior to your signing. I highly recommend her to any person needing estate planning.

Wills and Trust
We picked Monica Henessey for our Wills and Trust as she had exhibited in-depth knowledge of Texas Laws at our first meeting. She was thorough on each documents she drafted according to our needs, and explained in great lengths for questions we had for her. She is a caring lawyer. She ensures that the documents we hold will continue to serve for our children and more…She is also flexible on her time, and her fees are very reasonable. We highly recommend her for your legal needs! Thank you Monica!

Knows her stuff
Monica took two newbies and walked them through the process of wills, financial and end of life decision planning. She explained everything in a polite manner and made sure we understood what we didn't know. I would definitely recommend her and will, if needed, use her skill again.

Excellent -Super Easy to work with!
Hi all, A close friend referred me to Monica when I need some legal advice and documents created and executed. Monica spent about an hour with me over the phone during our free consultation & gathered so much information that she was able to prepare my will, Power of Attorney & other documents I needed. ALL without needing me to go to her office!!! In today's hustle & bustle world, that meant a lot!!! After a week or so, I scheduled an appointment to go in to sign the paperwork in front of two witnesses. Everyone was fully prepared upon my arrival and the process was super simple & fast!!! Also, I learned that Monica's rates are quite fair and reasonable! I had been asking around for a referral for years when I was finally introduced to Monica---I am so glad I was able to find the right Attorney to work with!
