Estate Planning is for everyone, not just the wealthy or the aging. A well-designed estate plan will provide for you and your loved ones, including minor children and aging parents.
An Estate Plan is one of the most important steps that you can take in your life to protect yourself during incapacity, and it may help you avoid probate, reduce or avoid estate taxes and provide for charitable organizations.
Attorney Schoemakers meets with individuals and families from all walks of life to review their personal and financial situation. During an Estate Planning Consultation, she will discuss all your needs, concerns, hopes, and wishes, as well as explain all the options available to you based upon your situation.
A well-balanced estate plan may include wills, trusts, durable power of attorney, medical power of attorney, living wills, or a combination thereof. For parents with minor children, we recommend our Kids Safety Plan™ so that they may ensure their children will be protected when we as parents are no longer able to do so.
No matter the combination, the goal is the same; to give you peace of mind knowing that you have a plan in place for when an unexpected crisis comes your way.

When a loved on no longer can take care of themselves, the law steps in to help them. Guardianship is a legal proceeding designed to supervise and protect them. The Texas Probate Code defines an “incapacitated person” as an adult individual who, because of a physical or mental condition, is substantially unable to:
- Provide food, clothing, or shelter for himself or herself;
- Care for the individual’s physical health; or
- Manage the individual’s financial affairs.
The definition also includes a minor or a person who must have a guardian appointed to receive funds due to the person from any governmental source. The “ward” is the person who requires help. The “guardian” is the person appointed by the court to help the ward manage his financial affairs and care for himself or herself. If you are worried about the rights and welfare of an incapacitated person, or you are looking to safeguard their assets when they can no longer do this themselves, we can help.
Call our office to talk to Attorney Schoemakers to see how we can help you navigate the guardianship process and your role as guardian of a loved one’s person, their estate or both.
