Providing Skilled Counsel On Estate Planning And Guardianship

It is a common misconception that only wealthy individuals should meet with an attorney to develop an estate plan. In fact, estate plans greatly benefit most individuals and their families. These legal documents not only streamline the distribution of assets and property, but also can be used to establish health care and financial directives in the event of incapacitation.

For over half a century, Pakis, Giotes, Page & Burleson, P.C., has provided adept counsel to individuals and families concerned about protecting their legacy, welfare and personal and business assets. Our Waco firm concentrates heavily on estate planning and probate representation. In addition, our attorneys, Artie G. Giotes and C. Scott Omo, are board-certified in estate planning and probate law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
