“Failing to prepare is planning to fail.” – attributed to various people

“This is about your values.” My law partners and I explain to prospective clients: “Your values and family wealth will endure by wise planning.” Being from Texas, we get to serve proud Texas families. This bit of wisdom about your values has proved true for generations of Texas families with interests in all manner of businesses: ranching, banking, retail, the trades, real estate, medicine, high tech here in Austin, and big oil. Armed with this knowledge, what is inexcusable is failing to plan. Failing to plan wastes your resources that could be passed forward to seed shared prosperity, and inevitably creates unfairness that tears apart dear relationships. Unfortunately, as attorneys, we see these family nightmares repeated, over and over, when folks put off planning. As a result, our clients choose to take action without delay and do their family estate planning with our guidance. It benefits those we love the most. So which do you choose?

I have aligned my practice to serve individuals and families in planning estate legal affairs. We typically serve individuals, investors, small business owners, entrepreneurs, executives, and those managing inherited wealth. Our clients are educated to consider active planning strategies that give effect to their values and preserve wealth to benefit those they love.

I deliver advice and understanding that empowers you to actively plan and protect those you love most, by ensuring wise use of your accumulated assets according to your values in the future. Our deliberative, informed approach creates family harmony and avoids family disputes over valuable assets such as property, businesses and investments, today and in the future.

I co-founded our law firm to serve individuals and families with wise, pragmatic advice based on many years of experience as an attorney, business person, husband, son, and father. I will guide you in choosing legal strategies that are practical, and that stand up both in the good times and also when challenged. The passing of a wise and loving family patriarch or matriarch presents a severe challenge to any family. So, our planning lessens those blows, and provides security, order and continuity. Your wisdom and values are given life and passed forward to benefit your dear family. Our planning work, together, is particularly effective for preventing family disputes and arguments over your assets. There is little need for such disputes. We make certain that assets are passed along according to your exact plans and preferences.

I listen to you, learning your values and priorities. My goal is to empower you with understanding to make or change important family decisions, as you desire. Our consultations are structured to serve you in this manner. By careful listening, I provide precise, reliable advice for your consideration. I take great care to inform you of options and risks, so you can make the best decisions for your circumstances.

Simply put, there is no substitute for planning ahead. Many successful clients adopt the practice of exercising abundant caution in legal matters, using me as a sounding board. This process is encouraged by flat fee engagements, because there is no substitute for timely, decisive action where necessary to protect one’s legal rights in property of all types. We do the heavy lifting for our clients so that they avoid the risk of their important decisions being made under dispute in public forums by judges or government agencies.
