At Patricia L. Brown & Associates, in Round Rock, Texas, we understand that the need to find a lawyer may mean that you (and perhaps your loved ones) are facing a stressful and anxious legal issue — perhaps one of the most difficult in your life. Most attorneys are educated and must pass the bar exam - so how do you go about selecting one? Much like selecting a doctor, one with experience in the area you need help, coupled with competence and compassion, who actually listens to you with empathy and sensitivity to your unique circumstances. We treat our clients the way we would want to be treated in a similar situation.
I am an attorney myself. For nearly five years Patricia has been representing my family in an extremely difficult child custody case. She has been there for us every step of the way. I would highly recommend Patricia to anyone needing a good family law attorney.” More Testimonials
We treat clients like people, not "cases to be managed", recognizing each of you have unique legal issues and personal circumstances. Our attorneys, paralegals and staff are hired with this philosophy in mind. Most have personal experience with divorce with children and understand the issues from both sides. Our clients typically feel a sense of relief after their initial consultation. They should have an understanding of their options and a path to resolution, which can help return their lives to normal. Divorce, child custody issues, bankruptcy, and other such issues can put your future in doubt, and you need experienced, sensitive and competent advice and representation.
Williamson County, Texas, Divorce, Probate, Wills and Estate Planning Lawyers Developing Strategies for You
When you hire us to be your family law or bankruptcy attorney, we will first patiently listen to you and ask many questions to ensure our understanding of your unique situation. Our first objective is to resolve the issues to your satisfaction, as quickly and inexpensively as possible. However, in more contentious situations, our lawyers take an even more aggressive approach, studying and evaluating the other side, including their evidence and witnesses, all the circumstances surrounding your situation, then forming a sound and winning strategy. You will be intimately engaged with the formulation of the strategy and subsequent tactics.
Our family law practice encompasses a range of divorce and non-divorce issues, including child custody and support, modifications of court orders, adoptions, prenuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements. We practice collaborative law and encourage our divorce clients to reach divorce settlement agreements in this manner. Doing so reduces your costs, speeds resolution, and creates far less stress and anxiety. However, if necessary, we will take your case to trial, and you can be assured of aggressive representation.
Since 2008, the global and the U.S. economy, the banking and real estate collapses have triggered the most serious economic downturn in over 80 years. This has caused a significant increase in unemployment, home foreclosures, and stifled wage increases. All of these have conspired to put many families on the edge of, or into, a financial crisis. With savings and 401Ks depleted, the slightest upset can devastate a family's finances, leaving them with few alternatives. We can help you obtain relief from credit card debt and other debt through Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing. Bankruptcy is a legitimate tool for individuals and families to rebuild their lives, which have been damaged often through no fault of their own. There is no shame in bankruptcy, but rather an opportunity to begin again and rebuild your lives.
Probate, Wills and Estate Planning
Wills are one of those things we always put off to another day. None of us enjoy facing our inevitable mortality, or the prospect of incapacity due to an illness or accident, but putting it off is a disservice to your loved ones, whom you work so hard to nourish and protect. No one wants the impersonal "state" to settle your affairs or decide who will have custody of and care for your children? Do you want your assets disposed of in a way which would irritate you? Do you want your heirs to be fighting over the disposition of your assets, trying to determine what you would have wanted, or, worse, not caring what you might have wanted but fending for themselves?
For a modest investment in time and money, we can steer you through this process quickly, and put your and your loved one's minds at ease. Estate planning is not only for the wealthy but anyone who has children or owns any assets or property, which typically includes most of us. Each of us should have powers of attorney, a will, a living will, and organ donation (if desired). Our law firm handles estate planning, wills and trusts, as well as probate and estate administration. As with everything we do, we will carefully determine each individual's or families' needs. These documents may be the most important legal documents any of us will sign in our entire lives. Simply downloading a form from the Internet and filling it out could result in errors or critical omissions. Look into our Peace of Mind Package™.
