Family Law Mediation Services
A family law mediator’s main objective is to mediate the issues a family has and come to a decision beneficial to the parties, especially if there are children involved. A third party mediator serves to resolve issues in a matter that is fair to all parties. Mediation often saves all of the parties substantial legal expenses and avoids hurtful and embarrassing trials. Most Family Courts require that the parties attend mediation prior to final orders being entered. We offer a full service conference room for both full day and half day mediations.
United States Tax Court
If you are facing an issue with the Internal Revenue Service, it is important that you have expert counsel on your side. Allow our firm to guide you through any IRS issues that you may be having, and assist you in resolving them. Tax attorneys are lawyers who specialize in the complex and technical field of tax law. They're best for handling complex, technical and legal issues associated with your tax situation. A tax attorney can step in after you have a problem, but consulting with one in advance can also help you avoid problems.
Starting a New Business or Expanding
Whether starting a new business or growing a current entity, having a plan is essential to having success. Allow us to review your business plan and tailor a strategy that will maximize your financial gains and limit your liabilities. What type of business entity should you set up? Do you want to incorporate? Can you function as a sole proprietor? Our financial expertise and legal knowledge make the perfect combination for leading you in the direction of success!
Real Property Transactions
Why hire an attorney to handle a Real Property Transaction rather than hiring a realtor? Quite simply; Realtors cannot provide you with legal advice. They are actually prohibited by law from doing so. Using a licensed attorney to buy/sell real property gives you access to the answers to difficult legal questions that often arise during real property transactions. It also gives you the advantage of recognizing possible complications before they arise. Most Real Property transactions in Texas have a 6% commission expense to the seller. Using an attorney eliminates a large commission and strengthens your negotiating position. Most transactions can be handled by our firm for substantially less.
Ongoing Civil Litigation and Mediation
When you are facing a legal dispute you want the best possible representation to protect and advocate on your behalf. Even a solid case can quickly unravel without the help of a trained and emotionally detached attorney. Similarly, failing to hire a lawyer when starting a business, reviewing a contract or embarking on other endeavors with potential legal ramifications can result in otherwise avoidable pitfalls. Our firm negotiates millions of dollars in law suits annually. Do not face your litigation without representation. Contact us for a free initial consult to see where you stand.
Financial Planning and Investment Advising
Whether finally realizing financial success in your career, starting a new family, or planning for retirement having a qualified advisor is essential to reaching our financial goals. How will you pay for college for your children? What is the best way to invest an inheritance? How much money will you REALLY need to retire in the manner you envision? What is the best way to distribute your wealth within your estate to protect your loved ones from a tax burden? Our firm handles portfolios from the thousands to the multi-millions with years of expert knowledge. Allow us to show you your financial future forecast, and tailor an investing plan to meet your needs.

Not Planning for the inevitable is the biggest mistake most people make. Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging, during a person's life, for the management and disposal of that person's estate during the person's life and at and after death, while minimizing gift, estate, generation skipping transfer, and income tax. Estate planning includes planning for incapacity as well as a process of reducing or eliminating uncertainties over the administration of a probate and maximizing the value of the estate by reducing taxes and other expenses. The ultimate goal of estate planning can be determined by the specific goals of the client, and may be as simple or complex as the client's needs dictate. For many clients a simple Estate plan can be made in a single appointment.

We can review contracts for you on a one time basis, or be available as needed as an established client. When in doubt, let an attorney guide you!
