Texas Real Estate Articles


I want to thank you for the information provided on your website. As a litigation lawyer, I have referred to this information more than once.

Brownsville Attorney Barry R. Benton

Thank you for the immediate response on a Saturday. I didn't think I would hear from you till Monday. Excellent customer service!

Client Jeff H.

I always check your website and it is very inspiring. Not to mention that you are a great attorney.

Investor Client Francisco P.

I frequently refer to your website and book when I get stuck on real estate matters. The information is extremely helpful.

San Antonio Attorney Lisa Galvan

I give your book an A+. You are a rock star in our legal community!

Woodlands Attorney David Borger

David, you are the man. The future of law is with you!

I was referred to Mr. Willis by a title company. Though his office uses email as the primary form of communication, his replies are surprisingly quick. Documents are produced very quickly as well, often within the day. Mr. Willis's level of detail and professionalism is top notch.

Client T. Scott

I have to say, these are the most detailed, best written real estate documents that I have seen so far. You really mean what you say on your website.

San Antonio Broker and Investor Rolando Flores

I was recently sued and showed my litigation attorney the asset protection structure that you built for us two years ago. “Perfect!” he said. Thank you, David.

Client Peter W.

What a great resource! I liked your book so much I purchased the Kindle version to have on my phone. I’ve recommended it to my investor and Realtor clients.

Dallas Attorney John Andrews

Months after setting up my LLC David Willis continued to answer questions and provide guidance, usually within a matter of hours. I would strongly recommend LoneStarLandLaw to any investor seeking a trusted business partner.

Client Robert H

I must say your articles always impress me. I like your style. I don't make it to Houston often, but next time I do, I owe you lunch.

Dallas Attorney Matthew Aycock

I was delighted to find your concise and well-written article on adverse possession. As a professional educator for 25 years, I appreciate the style and manner with which you approach public education. Thank you!

Client Hank M., Phd.

I would be happy to provide a testimonial although it looks like you have a long list of them already. Can't thank you enough. I'll definitely use your services in the future.

Client Ben P.

Your book is a terrific resource!

El Paso Attorney Kathleen Crook

Your book is a very easy and informative read. I will gladly and confidently refer clients to you.

Houston Attorney Kevin J. Smith

It is a rarity and a great pleasure to do business with someone who is so thorough, accurate and prompt.

Clients Rod and Michelle F.

Thank you very much for all your help! You have provided a very valuable service to me and I highly appreciate it. I will recommend you to everybody should someone ask me for an recommendation for a real estate attorney.

Client Sanjay P.

David Willis is the consummate real estate lawyer, and possesses uncanny skill at structuring deals.

Houston Attorney Carol Guess

Excellent book!

J. Thomas Black, Houston Attorney

I would never have expected David to reply to my email on a weekend but he did. He is a very diligent, dedicated, and knowledgeable attorney. The website is so informative - it offers easy-to-understand explanations to real estate and asset protection questions.

Client Chris V.

I've been so impressed with your website and your expertise. I would endorse you anytime.

Dallas Attorney Charlie Kim

As I acquired more investment properties – I now own about 50 rental houses – I became more concerned with asset protection. David Willis was able to create a simple two-company structure that recently withstood a court challenge. Having my real estate assets securely protected certainly adds to my peace of mind.

Client Bryan P.

Working with LoneStarLandLaw online was fast and efficient. I received high-quality, sophisticated legal documents - along with the advice I needed - without having to spend hours in a lawyer’s office.

Client John T.

David J. Willis is a clever lawyer who came up with a great plan to protect my rental property from lawsuits. I feel much more secure now. He is available by email whenever I have questions.

Client Marion W.

As a corporate attorney who does real estate I can say with confidence that David Willis is the real estate law leader in Texas.

Dallas Attorney Kevin Vela

I live in London but was buying a small apartment complex in Texas. Mr. Willis handled the whole transaction for me, as both my lawyer and real estate broker. It was a relief to put the transaction in the hands of someone who knows what he’s doing.

Client Phillip K.

My portfolio contains a mixture of rent houses and owner-financed properties. I rely on David Willis for evictions, foreclosures, deeds, leases, options, and the like. This is a guy who knows the system and gets the job done.

Client Darrell P.

As an attorney I am familiar with David Willis' expertise in real estate. I highly recommend his book. If David wrote it, you can depend on it!

Woodlands Attorney Paul Spielvogel

Not long ago my LLC was sued over a contract - and I was sued along with it, personally. David Willis was eventually able to get my name removed from the suit. He also filed a counterclaim for a frivolous lawsuit. He is an aggressive lawyer to have on your side.

Client James S.

SHELF COMPANIES AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE
All With Anonymity Features



AVAILABLE SHELF COMPANIES:

Plaza Properties LLC, a traditional Texas LLC DBA “Phoenix Properties” and “Regency Asset Management.” Est. 2-19-16 under File No. 802394938. $2,995

Travis Joint Venture DBA Panstar Properties.

Note: our inventory is very low at this time because it is difficult to keep these shelf companies in stock. Traditional shelf anonymity LLCs are $2,995. The series version is $3,995. Pricing subject to change.

ANONYMITY:

This office is listed as organizer and (in the case of Texas LLCs) as registered agent. We have an established and excellent registered agent (a UPS store) in Las Vegas for the Nevada companies.

Additionally, all our shelf companies are "anonymity companies." We have been successful using our trust-based anonymity structure in Texas and Nevada for over five years now without any issues. It sounds simpler than it is. The Trust Agreement is actually complex to draft for this purpose, and it must mesh seamlessly with the LLC Company Agreement, First Meeting of Members, and other documents. You may expect these unique entities to be more expensive than LLCs formed with full public disclosure of management and ownership.

OTHER SHELF COMPANY FEATURES:

  • an established Texas or Nevada Series LLC (with paid Nevada business license)
  • complete asset protection documentation including a sophisticated company agreement specifically designed for asset protection
  • instruction letter (nearly 20 pages) providing tips on how to effectively use your LLC for real estate investment and maximize asset protection
  • Employer Identification Number issued by the IRS (but only so long as our conditions are met - i.e., client must supply a valid SS card with associated phone and address)
  • Assumed Name Certificates (DBAs) already obtained and ready to use to open a bank account and order checks and immediately commence operations in the name of the DBA
  • All state filings and fees up to date
  • premium leather company book with custom-printed membership certificates ($250 cost)
  • for Texas companies, one year of registered agent services by the attorney (although the client is obligated to obtain a POB for the anonymity trust)
  • for Nevada companies, a prime office street address on W. Sahara Avenue in Las Vegas and a helpful registered agent at that address
  • warranty deed of a Texas homestead into the anonymity trust is included (if the client chooses that approach)
  • 30 day legal Q&A retainer pertaining to LLC operations (not including transactional docs)
  • prompt shipment by UPS (after client provides the details necessary to complete trust agreement and other documents).

U.S. Companies formed with these anonymity features are, so far as we know, not available elsewhere at any price. Most Texas law firms have neither the knowledge nor the skill to create companies with anonymity features. All sales are final due to proprietary content of documents. Limited (not major) additional customization of documents is included. Inventory and prices subject to change. Payment for shelf companies is by such method as we direct (typically wire or transfer to our Wells Fargo operating account).

WHAT IS THE HUB-SUB STRUCTURE?

We currently have no Hub-Sub structures available but expect to have a new one soon. Our concept of a hub company (a Nevada series LLC) utilizes Series A, Series B, and so forth to own one or more separate subsidiary LLCs dedicated to different enterprises. The hub company is itself anonymously owned, forming a double layer of anonymity (also referred to as our "Chinese Puzzle Box" structure) – a daunting obstacle to any plaintiff who seeks to reach our client's assets. This approach is especially suitable for clients with diversified commercial interests, but would be useful for anyone interested in have a two-state "double firewall" against lawsuits. We have a graphic that further explains this - inquire. Fees are $7,995 including registered agent services for the first year.
