We assist individuals with establishing an estate plan in order to protect themselves and their loved ones in the case of death or disability. Proper estate planning puts individuals in charge of their finances, and it also spares expense, delay, and frustration associated with managing affairs once someone has passed away or become disabled. Our attorneys are experienced in providing individuals plans -- whether that be to avoid probate, provide for minor children, pay an estate tax, or give to a charitable organization. In doing estate planning work, our attorneys also assist individuals in planning for incapacity and medical care.

These matters include premarital agreements, divorce, custody, modification of orders, domestic violence protection orders, and third-party visitation rights. Our attorneys are compassionate and committed to each client.


We represent companies and individuals, as well as their insurance carriers, in litigation, mediation, and appeals. These disputes include construction defect claims, premises liability actions, agriculture-related litigation, oilfield accidents, motor vehicle liability injuries, and defense of third-party liability claims. We also litigate coverage issues, bad faith claims, indemnity claims, subrogation, insurance agency claims, insurance regulatory matters, and other insurance-related disputes.



We represent individuals who have suffered life-changing injuries or lost loved ones due to someone else's actions. These claims typically arise from motor vehicle accidents,  oilfield accidents, farm accidents, and premises accidents. Whether we litigate the case or recommend a litigation alternative, our attorneys are dedicated to serving each client's needs and ensuring the best outcome.


We assist individuals and families in managing and distributing a loved one’s assets after he or she passes away. The duration of probate can vary depending on a number of factors such as the value and complexity of the estate, the existence of a will, and the location of real property owned by the estate. Our attorneys are equipped to handle both large and small estates, and we will be there to answer your questions along the way. We also handle objections to wills, also known as “will contests.”
