Michael is one of the Founders and is a Partner of the law firm. He is Board Certified in Estate Planning and Probate by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and has been recognized by Thompson Reuters from 2015-2019 as a “Texas Super Lawyer” in his practice area. Michael’s practice focuses in the areas of estate planning and advising businesses.
When drafting wills and trusts for clients, Michael spends time getting to know the clients and their concerns and performs an in-depth financial analysis to evaluate if estate taxes are potentially implicated. He enjoys giving clients peace of mind about their planning, and believes everyone at every level of wealth should have either a will or a trust to match their particular needs and circumstances.
Many of Michael’s estate planning clients are also business clients. Michael works with business owners at all stages of their ownership - from the creation of the business, consulting over its purchase of land or lease of space, preparing contracts and documents needed for its transactions, helping its growth, and working with business owners to plan the “Killer D’s” (death, divorce, departure of a key employee, disability, downturn in the economy, and disruption by disaster).
Michael enjoys spending time with his daughters and grandchildren and working extensively with non-profits and his church.
