Our Services


Unlike many other practices, Your Legacy Legal Care focuses only on estate planning and related issues, so not only are our skills in this area finely tuned, but our attorneys have fulsome experience in this aspect of the law. We are acutely aware that we are working with you to construct documents and make crucial decisions that will affect you and your family for a long time, so we treat you as we would like to be treated — with respect and personal concern. In fact, many of our clients become our friends.

You can count on us to make sure every “t” is crossed and every “i” is dotted in any document we prepare. Also, we regularly review your documents to make sure they are current and available for immediate use. Knowing the stress that can result from an unknown financial obligation, we most often work on a flat fee basis.

Usually, the best way to avoid probate is to transfer your assets to your beneficiaries by establishing a revocable living trust. Once you put your assets into a living trust, they are managed by your appointed trustee and are not liable to probate or to estate tax. You should remember, however, that according to the recent revisions to the tax code, only those with assets over $11.2 million are subject to inheritance tax.

A living trust also has the advantage of protecting your privacy since, unlike a will, the trust is not a matter of public record. In your living trust you name a trustee and a surrogate trustee in case the first-named individual dies or becomes unable to perform the necessary duties. At the time of your death, the trust becomes irrevocable and the trustee in charge (now known as a successor trustee) will transfer your assets to your beneficiaries. As the name implies, a revocable trust has the advantage of being able to be changed at any time.

While most people do not opt for irrevocable trusts because of their permanence, such trusts do have tax advantages for those with extremely high-value assets. Irrevocable trusts will also do a good job of protecting your assets from creditors.

It hasn’t been easy to get where you are; you’ve earned your assets, now be sure to protect them. Asset protection planning is something that almost everyone can benefit from, but if you are a business owner, medical practitioner, or otherwise hold a position that exposes you to personal liability, then it’s particularly critical that you start the process of asset protection planning as soon as possible.


Whether you need the peace of mind that comes with knowing your personal assets are protected from business disputes and lawsuits, assurance that an impending divorce will not leave you with next to nothing, or confidence in knowing that the equity in your home would be protected should you have to declare bankruptcy, the only place to start is in the office of a highly qualified asset protection attorney who truly cares about you and the life you’ve built in Houston, TX.

My husband and I came in to do our estate planning documents as well as guardianship for our minor children. They could not have been more informative and just as per protective of our assets for our children as we are! I highly recommend this law firm.

I was on the phone with attorney Edgewood today and I was blown away! She really knows her stuff and she’s very passionate about the work she does.

Your Legacy Legal Care is by far the most attentive and professional group I have ever dealt with my 76 years. The entire group of the firm got involved in helping me through my estate planning - to name a few I want to gratefully think Meghna Patel, Taylor Alvarez, Susan Suniga, Kathleen Rhodes, and the attorney that guided me through this process - Kim Hegwood. It is with great pleasure. I recommend this firm.
