Contact Us

Our process for offering online legal services in Texas is easy, efficient, and popular with clients. Routine tasks – consultations, document preparation, entity formations, and payment – may now be handled entirely online, supplemented by an optional phone or video call.

Initial Consultations

The usual entry point for new clients is a consultation. However, if you know exactly what you want (a warranty deed, for instance), then you can bypass the consultation phase and go straight to a document request. Complex cases require an initial consultation.

Initial consultations with new clients are available online only. A specific appointment is not required. We begin promptly after receiving necessary case information, copies of background documents, and payment from the client. Please review our online consultation process and fees.

Our availability is limited to traditional business hours subject to our vacation schedule.

Legal Fees

Legal fees begin at $450. Our goal is full transparency as to consultation fees and our overall schedule of legal services. We regret that we are unable to offer any free attorney time.

“David is an incredibly knowledgeable and thorough attorney. His process is efficient and straightforward, and his guidance is superb.”

“Words cannot express how grateful my family and I are for Mr. Willis’ work. He truly made us feel as if we were his only clients, which really made us feel at ease in this very stressful and difficult situation. Even though we didn’t get to meet in person, I really must emphasize that Mr. Willis did a lot more for us via online than the attorneys we did meet in person.”

Your Inquiry is Confidential

All inquiries, new clients, and new cases are confidentially processed by means of the Client Inquiry Form below. Our reply will be in the form of general preliminary comments (not a formal consultation or legal opinion) that may come from a legal assistant or qualified associated attorney.
Fees apply beyond our initial response.

Becoming Our Client

Becoming our client requires that (1) we expressly accept the case, (2) we receive a copy of valid photo ID, and (3) we receive the required retainer. See answers to frequently asked questions relating to our legal services and fees.

Complete the Client Inquiry Form

We ask for a concise summary of basic facts to determine if there is a match between your legal issues and the services we provide. When and where do events occur? Who is involved? Is the case residential or commercial? Is litigation pending? What is the dollar amount involved? Also, what is the goal of your inquiry? A consultation? Document preparation or review? Transactional representation? LLC formation? Asset protection planning?

Please limit your initial inquiry to around 200 words. We can gather more detail and documents later. Note that we do not offer consultations or any other legal services by text.

We are a small and specialized law firm accepting only a limited number of qualified new clients at this time. We sincerely regret that we cannot assist all inquirers or accept all cases.

Please double check the accuracy of your email address

Our preliminary response is without charge but there is a fee for any consultation that may follow.
