Board-Certified, Top-Rated Attorney with 40 Years Experience in Texas Real Estate Law and Asset Protection

Review from a Physician Real Estate Investor

“During some late night internet research I stumbled upon some good legal info from David J Willis. I read several pages of well written real estate law, and decided to buy his book “Real Estate Law & Asset Protection for Texas Real Estate Investors.” Since then I’ve formed a new LLC with David, I was very impressed with the speed at which he answers questions and gets things done! Thanks David.”

Review from an Attorney Real Estate Investor

“David J. Willis is an expert in the field of asset protection. He provided excellent legal advice to me on several issues. The online process that David’s law firm utilizes is very easy to use and David responded to my questions very quickly. I am a lawyer but have no expertise whatsoever in this area of law. I will continue to be a client of David’s in the future and I highly recommend him.”
