Wills and Probate Matters
Your Last Will and Testament is perhaps the most affordable—and most important—legal document you will ever obtain. Your Will determines (among other things) who inherits your estate, who administers your estate, who takes care of your children, who takes care of their property, and even who cares for your pets. Without a properly drafted and executed will, the Court is powerless to enforce your last wishes. You risk leaving your loved ones in a very difficult position regarding your estate and children at a very difficult time.
The Law Office of Russell Frost believes it is important to ensure that your last wishes are carried out exactly as you desire. Russell will take the time to answer any questions and address any concerns you may have. In addition to a Last Will and Testament, Russell can prepare a durable power of attorney, a medical power of attorney, a living will, and other related documents. Your documents are prepared accurately and promptly, and they can be executed at your convenience. This process provides your loved ones with security and you with peace of mind.
If you have a matter currently before the Probate Court, Russell can help. He has appeared numerous times before Judge Guy Herman in the Travis County Probate Court on various probate matters. He is also a certified attorney ad litem and is capable of serving either as an attorney ad litem or guardian ad litem.
Russell has worked on a variety of property litigation matters from landlord-tenant disputes, to condemnation proceedings, to judicial foreclosures. He understands that homestead, business, and other real property investments are among your most valuable investments. He knows that when legal disputes regarding your property arise, they must be dealt with swiftly, effectively, and efficiently.
A former briefing attorney at the Fourth Court of Appeals and former intern at the Third Court of Appeals, Russell knows how the appellate process works from the inside. His experience in handling appeals from the perspective of the bench and his ability to spot the appellate issues, evaluate them on the merits, provide his clients with recommendations, and clearly and concisely argue the issues on appeal make him an effective appellate advocate.
Whether you’re starting a new business or are already up and running, minimize your personal liability for company obligations by organizing under Texas law. Take advantage of the Texas relatively new and extremely popular business model: the Texas Limited Liability Company (“LLC”). Unlike the Limited Partnership, owners need not trade in control to enjoy limited liability. Unlike S Corporations, LLCs have no restrictions like the number of shareholders that can invest in the corporation or the types of entities that can be shareholders. Unlike C Corporations, LLCs avoid “double taxation.” In short, the LLC can mix and match the better attributes from other business models and morph to fit your needs.
Order of Non-Disclosure
Did you receive a POM at age 19? A DWI at age 21? Or is there some other small smudge on your criminal background record? If you have been successful on deferred adjudication probation, you may be able to control access to your criminal record through an Order for Non-Disclosure. Once sealed, you may legally and truthfully deny your criminal conviction.
