If you aren’t local, let us be your e-lawyer. While we are based in the beautiful Southwest, we have clients located all over Texas and New Mexico. Our e-clients receive the same attentive and timely representation as those who are able to drop in our office. We invite you to ditch the e-commerce form buying and traditional law firm hourly rate model for our simplified and comprehensive legal services.
Our practice areas focus on business transactions (including formations, tax, and corporate transactions), estate planning & probate, and real estate. By offering a multitude of legal packages at set prices, we can tailor our services to suit your needs and expectations. We look forward to working with you.
