Houston Estate Planning and Probate Attorney

In June of 2014, Amanda was studying for the bar when her dad unexpectedly passed away. Amanda was confronted with grief, shock and death in a way she had never experienced before. She felt entirely overwhelmed, with little capacity to handle the administrative headache that accompanied her father’s death and the probate process. Amanda didn’t know where to begin, and worse, she realized there was so much she didn’t know about her dad and his wishes. Now it was too late to ask him where he held his accounts. Too late to have him jot down the pin numbers, passwords, and other information that would make administering his estate so much more manageable. Too late to talk to him about what he would have wanted at his funeral and for his family as they moved forward.

Once the initial fog of losing her dad had passed, Amanda decided to use her personal experience with loss to help others going through the same thing. On the probate side, Amanda understands that grieving families need more than legal services. These families need someone who can take as much stress off their plate as possible and give them the relief in knowing their loved one’s wishes have been respected and their estate has been handled correctly.

On the estate planning side, Amanda realizes that a well-planned estate can mitigate a lot of the burdens families face when they lose someone they love. Amanda believes her clients deserve a plan that goes beyond the legal documents and ties up both legal and non-legal loose ends in order to give her clients’ families a path forward through their grief. Amanda wishes she could have done things differently before her dad died, and wants to be sure her clients do not leave their family members feeling the same way. With a husband and young kids of her own, Amanda helps her clients create estate plans that do not just transfer assets- the wills and trusts Amanda creates take a load off the survivors, prevent familial conflict, and protect future generations. Whether you need a will, a trust, or a vehicle to protect your assets, Amanda can prepare a customized plan that will help you achieve your goals. Amanda enjoys counseling her clients on how to use their estate plan to protect their legacy and provide for loved ones in the event of death or incapacity.

Amanda graduated from the University of Texas School of Law in 2014. During law school, Amanda served as an associate editor of the Texas Law Review and graduated with honors.

Amanda is committed to her husband Gene (a great Intellectual Property lawyer) and raising her two young boys.
