     Put simply, my job is to protect you from potential risk; from those who would otherwise take advantage of your legal rights; and to make sure your family has what they need to be taken care of, should anything ever happen to you. My interest in the law started with my own landlord failing to make repairs. I went without an AC unit for three weeks in the middle of August in Texas, and it was upwards of 116 degrees inside of my apartment. An attorney helped me back then, and my A/C was replaced the same day I delivered her letter to my landlord. From that point on I have been passionate about fighting for the rights of other people like me.

     You work hard to provide for yourself and your family, and it’s important to know that you can protect the life you have created, both by defending it now, and planning for your estate after you pass away. I sincerely want to help you navigate all of life’s events, whether they were foreseen, or are a complete surprise. 

I am an estate and business planning attorney, as well as a civil litigator. I dedicate all of my attention to ensuring that:
1) your goals are realized, whether they are personal, family or business related;
2) your risk and expenses are minimized; 
3) your access to legal help is convenient, leveraging technology to make meeting easier; and
4) you have peace of mind.

     All of my clients receive personal attention, 24/7 access to case information and updates, clear communication, and timely assistance. While case outcomes cannot be predetermined by any attorney, all of my clients will attest to their complete satisfaction with my legal services, and excellent work-product for estate planning. The thing I hear most often is that my clients appreciate that I truly listen, and am a source of positive motivation to help them take the next step in achieving their current and future goals.

Call me today at 281-586-2207 if you have a current or future legal need you need to address!

She is Fantastic
Ms. MacGeorge, has compassion, and great people skills. She has a vast amount of knowledge and has done her research in helping people who don’t know their rights. Her perseverance on matters for her clients is beyond anyone I’ve encountered and I have worked with attorneys for years.

Excellent
Ms. MacGeorge was very detailed and often repeated so that it was clear what she was explaining to me. Ms. MacGeorge was very knowledgeable about tenant and probate law. She gave me hope. I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. She gave me an option that no other Attorney gave me. She was very clear in the potential outcomes and challenges. I am somewhat relieved and may be able to get a good night's sleep tonight.

Ms. Gebe, D.
First time consulting with her via phone. She was very generous with her time, listened my issues carefully, is very kind & straight shooter. I have decided I will be hiring her if my plan A is not successful.

Extremely knowledgable!
We consulted with the lawyer on a possible eviction/end of lease on the part of the landlord. Lawyer was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. She explained our options in great detail and, as a result, we are better informed and we know what to do and what we can expect, should the landlord decide to end our month-to-month lease. I highly recommend her services.

Attorney provided support and guidance on how to handle an issue where landlord violated Texas property code within renewal of apartment lease where I’m the guarantor; she clearly explained next steps for me to take should the landlord hand over matter to a collection agency and put it on my credit report;

A Great Resource
Jennifer was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. We were able to quickly walk through all of the details of my case, review my lease, and she even took the time to not only assist me in how to organize the additional materials I needed to present to my tenant but also to explain the upcoming steps putting my mind at ease in what was otherwise a stressful situation. I would strongly recommend working with her.

Jennifer explained everything clearly and walked me through all the state and federal laws that applied to my situation. She sent me all the laws and links to where I can find them. I am now confident on where to go from here. It is such a relief to finally get some answers after months of struggling to find out what I needed to do.

Jennifer was incredibly kind and knowledgeable. We had questions about our lease after we received a job opportunity out of state, and Jennifer pointed out some crucial information that gave us the knowledge we need to proceed with confidence.

Great attorney
Ms. Mac George helped me with a guardianship case and she made the process less stressful. She answered all the many questions I had and she was very professional. She was easy to reach when I need answers to specific questions. She prepared me for what would happen during the process and I would recommend her to anyone. My case was approved and again she made everything easy. Thanks so much. Will use her again I'm sure of it.
