Legal Services and Fees
We handle cases involving Texas residential and commercial real estate law including a wide range of document preparation. Our asset protection practice involves strategic planning and entity formation (including traditional LLCs and series LLCs in both Texas and Nevada), partnerships and joint ventures, and a variety of personal and investor trusts.
We do not handle construction law, condominium law, zoning law, or HOA law; bankruptcy or other federal matters; probate of wills and estates (except for affidavits of heirship); securities law; divorce or family law; patent or copyright law; immigration; insurance law; or tax law. Our firm is not affiliated with a title company, so we do not conduct title searches or issue title policies. Finally, we do not offer tax or accounting advice. Please consult a qualified tax advisor in conjunction with seeking legal advice.
Please visit Fees & Policies for a comprehensive list of our services and fees. That section also includes terms of service that apply to all clients in place of individual fee agreements or engagement letters.
Our online inquiry process is easy, efficient, and popular with clients. All new cases and clients are processed exclusively through this website, not by phone or in the office. Most routine tasks - initial consultations, entity formations, asset protection and litigation reviews, and most document preparation tasks - are now handled entirely online. No office visit is necessary for these cases.
If you are uncertain of the law, would like your case or situation evaluated, need to have existing documentation reviewed, or wish to discuss your legal options, then a paid consultation is your best first step. Consultations are handled online, in the form of an email dialogue between attorney and client. Our goal with consultations is to thoroughly discuss the legal issues involved and respond to your questions. It is not necessary to set a specific appointment time. Both consultation requests and document preparation requests go into our queue in the order in which payment is made.
Turn-around time on consultations and most document preparation projects is usually about two business days from the time we receive all necessary information and payment from the client. Copies of supporting documents can be emailed or faxed to (832) 201-5327. A supplementary phone call is available after the email discussion but is limited to 20 minutes.

If you know what legal service you need, we are ready to respond promptly. Just choose the item from our fee schedule (Fees & Policies) and make payment, which then places your file in our queue. Please note that we do not download or read attachments until payment is made.
Business hours are 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. CST, Monday through Friday, holidays excepted. This is how we define a business day for purposes of turnaround. Evening and weekend emails are considered received on the next business day.
Client Inquiry Form
Please provide a concise summary of your case so we can determine if there is a good match between your legal issues and the professional services we provide. Who is involved? When and where do events occur? What dollar amount is involved? Residential or commercial? Also, what is the goal of your inquiry – a consultation? Document preparation? Asset protection or LLC formation? Filing suit? We need basic information but ask that you please limit your explanation to around 200 words. We do not review attachments or documents in the initial inquiry.
Our response will be in the form of brief preliminary emailed comments (not a formal consultation or legal opinion) and may come from a legal assistant or one of our qualified associated attorneys.
We sincerely want to hear about your case but request that you not use the Client Inquiry Form to simply ask for free advice. Advising on real estate law and asset protection is our core business, and fees apply beyond the initial inquiry.
Your inquiry is entirely confidential. We look forward to being of service to you and resolving your legal issues.
