Firm Overview

At Ford+Bergner LLP, we focus on providing practical solutions tailored to the individual needs of our clients. Generally speaking, our practice is limited to:

More specifically, our Houston estate attorneys strive to assist you in identifying and achieving your estate planning needs, with related advice regarding the variety of tax issues that may face a client, whether related to their business, estate, or personal tax matters.

Additionally, our Houston probate attorneys guide clients through the difficult processes of probate and guardianships. Likewise, our probate attorneys assist you in tackling the challenging issues involved when a lawsuit arises out of a probate or guardianship case.

Because our practice is devoted exclusively to Houston Texas Estate Law, Houston Texas Probate Law and Texas Guardianship Law, we have the knowledge and experience in these areas to assist you with everything from simple wills to complex estate planning, and with the litigation of estate, probate and guardianship disputes. Because our probate and estate planning practices are so comprehensive, we are able to form a relationship with you to address your changing estate planning needs.

We do not view our relationships with our clients as one-time transactions. We are here to assist you as your family, business, and property grows and changes. Our goal is to be constantly vigilant to insure that you are getting the maximum benefit from our services.

Whether you need a Houston Texas estate planning attorney or a Houston Texas probate administration attorney; whether you are drafting a will, navigating a relative's estate through probate, establishing a guardianship for an aging parent, or you are involved in a dispute that is headed for litigation; working with us means always having talented and skilled lawyers who know you, and more importantly whom you know and trust to work for you.
