Biography

My immediate family farms throughout New Mexico, West Texas and Oklahoma. In fact, my grandfather drove a tractor until the day that he passed at the ripe old age of 89. As they say where I’m from: "He died with his cowboy boots on."

I was in my first semester of law school at that time, and the time and expense of the estate process was so traumatizing to my family that I was sure the estate attorney had committed malpractice. As it turned out, he did what many estate attorneys do. I knew then that I could do much better, and I've been doing it ever since. I work relentlessly to plan for and guide families through a difficult process as quickly and easily as possible so that they can get back to what’s important: being with their loved ones.

After my personal experiences with my own family's story, I take great satisfaction in knowing that I am taking care of good people and avoiding the pitfalls that my family went through.

Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered
Q. Am I, as a surviving spouse, entitled to any part of my husbands estate, even though we were separated?
A: I’m sorry to hear you are going through this, it’s a tough situation from the sound of it.

The good news is you have full legal rights as a surviving spouse, separation has no effect. You have a right to 50% of everything you and your husband own (including any real estate). You also have rights you can enforce as a surviving spouse, despite your husband naming his brother as his beneficiary:

1) Family allowance: under this you can apply for money to cover your living expenses for up to 12 months.

2) Allowance in lieu of homestead: you are entitled to up to $45,000 if you don't own a home.

3) Homestead: if you do own a home, you are entitled to live in it rent free for the rest of your life.

If you’d like to learn more about protecting your rights, give me a call and I would be happy to explain in more detail!

Q. AUNT IS TRUSTEE / EXECUTOR OF ESTATE. I AM NAMED AS A BENEFICIARY. HOW LONG MUST I WAIT BEFORE RECIEVE MY PART
A: Smaller estates are usually settled within a year in Texas, especially when there are little or no debts. The larger and more complex the estate is, that usually means the longer it will take before the executor can settle the debts and make the distributions. The reason executors often wait until all of the debts are settled before they make distributions to the beneficiaries is because they could potentially be liable to the creditors if they make a premature distribution and don't have enough left over to pay all of the creditors.
Q. My father committed suicide in 2006 & left No will how can we get my moms name on the deed or sell it?
A: If your father only had children with your mother, then your mother can have an Affidavit of Heirship prepared so she can sell the house (assuming they were married). If he did have children from a previous relationship, then you might still be able to do this, but it gets more complicated because the children will also be heirs.
