What Derek Enjoys About Practicing Law

I enjoy working with clients on their estate planning including wills, trusts, powers of attorney and other incapacity planning documents; probate and administration of estates; guardianship; formation, maintenance, purchase and sales of corporations, limited liability companies, general and limited partnerships; and real estate. I always like working with individuals and families assisting them in preparing their planning to accomplish their goals.

Derek's Experience

As a lawyer I have represented clients with their planning since August of 1995.  You will be impressed by the compassion, respect and personal attention we give our clients in every single case in each practice area.

I graduated Cum Laude from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and The University of Texas with a Doctor of Jurisprudence.
