As estate attorneys, we can help you make sure your property is distributed the way you want it to be. We have built a Will Package that takes care of many basics, including a will, powers of attorney, living will, and other important documents.
A will is the most important tool for anyone who wants to save their family the trouble (and oftentimes the fights) over who gets their property. A will is the primary document for designating who will care for your minor children if anything happens to you. Having a will spares your family the expense of having a court determine who your heirs are. Furthermore, two groups of people absolutely need wills: same-sex couples and mineral rights owners.
As experienced probate attorneys, we can determine what must be done to resolve your loved one's estate. We can also give you advice about cost-saving alternatives to probate, such as the Small Estate Affidavit and Muniment of Title Proceedings.
Have you been named the executor in a loved one's will? The executor must make sure the estate's assets and debts are handled in accordance with the Texas Probate Code. The executor has a lot of responsibilities, so it is imperative to have a probate attorney guide you through this process.
Or perhaps, your loved one passed away without a will. The attorneys at Hall & Mixon, PLLC are regularly appointed by DFW-area probate courts to help sort out intestate estates. (Intestate means without a valid will). We know first-hand the potential problems you could face. Let us help you get through this process so that you can deal with your grief and move on with your life.
DUI and DWI
As DWI/DUI lawyers, we can defend you and work to get your charges reduced or (in the best circumstances) dropped altogether. We can also help you acquire an occupational license so that you won't miss any work, school, or other important occasions.
When representing clients facing DWI or DUI charges, we diligently examine each detail of your arrest to determine whether your rights were violated or whether any mistakes were made by the police. We believe in upholding the law, and that includes keeping the government honest.
We also approach a DWI/DUI case from the standpoint of ensuring that our clients are able to continue working or attending school with minimal disruption. This means assisting our clients in obtaining an occupational license and working out a plan for deferred adjudication (when such a sentence is available) that is manageable with the client's workload.
What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others
We have an eye for detail and nuance. Our practice of taking a close look from every angle goes a long way to finding creative legal solutions that drive cases to positive outcomes. We make it a point of principle not to deal in volume business. We treat each client as an individual. Each case at Hall & Mixon receives the attention of both partners because our collaboration produces cost-effective solutions.
What distinguishes your law firm from others?
You have probably seen advertisements on television and billboards for attorneys and wondered, "Why are these guys so angry?" Because in reality, good lawyers don't just shout down their opponents. At Hall & Mixon PLLC, we realize that being an advocate means exercising perspective and offering knowledge. It means taking action with the right tone to achieve the desired outcome in any situation. Anger alone won't get anyone very far, but you can count on Hall & Mixon to be meticulous, thoughtful, diplomatic, and aggressive when it matters most.
