- Estate Planning, Probate, Tax Law ...
Probate isn't about money, it's about family. I am from a large Mexican family in the border city of Laredo, Texas. Family dynamics are always complex and changing, but my unique upbringing taught me to value my family even more now that I practice in the city of Austin. I understand that going through probate is often intimidating, and takes place at a difficult time when a family has lost a loved one. My goal is to make it as easy and efficient as possible on your family, so that you can get back to doing what's important: spending time with the ones you love. My team and I make going through probate a breeze, and give our clients the peace of mind that they need knowing we are there for them every step of the way.

- Q. My mother is moving from Louisiana to Texas. She has a simple Louisiana will. Does she need a new will?
- A: Great question! Technically yes, Texas courts are supposed to apply other states laws in this situation. In practice, this is very difficult because Louisiana has a different legal system than Texas, and wills unfortunately don't travel well across state lines. For example, in Texas, the default rule is for a judge to heavily oversee the probate of an estate, which is expensive and time consuming, so most Texas attorneys waive this requirement to save their clients time and money. Since Louisiana has a different default, that will probably does not waive the requirement. So, despite the fact that it will still go to the beneficiaries named in the Louisiana will, it would probably cost much more time and money when you have to take it to the probate court since the default rules won't be waived.
