Founded in 1998, the firm has provided high quality legal services to numerous clients in the North Texas area. While starting as a general business law firm, the practice has evolved and now primarily provides legal services to individuals at a most difficult and challenging time in their life, guiding them through the judicial process of probating their deceased loved ones' estates. In addition, we assist clients with estate planning decisions to best protect their assets and those who are dear to them in anticipation of the transition of their own estates. We pride ourselves on prompt, empathetic, and personalized service for each and every client.
Recognizing her extensive experience in the probate arena, Gretchen's colleagues elected her to serve for several years as the Probate Chair of the Denton County Bar Association Real Estate, Probate and Trust Section, until she resigned to allow others to fulfill this function. Gretchen has also been honored to contribute as a Board member to several organizations, including the Boys & Girls Club of Denton County and the Monsignor King Outreach Center, the latter of which provides safe shelter to those experiencing homelessness. Gretchen also served as Co-Chair of the Finance Council for Immaculate Conception parish in Denton for many years, and she currently serves on her new parish's finance council as well. In this way, she strives to give back to the North Texas community that has been so generously welcoming of her and the firm.
TRUST WILLS & PROBATE
Estate Management, Probate Process
At our firm, our clients deal directly with a highly credible and experienced attorney, rather than through a legal assistant. They have direct access to the attorney, and we aspire to promptly respond to every phone call and email within hours, and certainly by the following business day. We take on most matters on an up front agreed-upon flat rate basis, which we believe eliminates client anxiety over receiving "scary mail" containing invoices based on hourly billing. We hope that by doing so, our clients know that they can reach out to the attorney for answers to questions or concerns at any time without worrying about additional costs being incurred.
