We provide the expertise, but we see you as a partner in your own case. We will always answer your phone calls and keep you updated.
Experience - The attorneys at The Ashmore Law Firm have more than 100 years of combined legal experience. Our firm was founded by former Probate Judge, Joseph E.

Excellence - At the Ashmore Law Firm every client gets personal attention. We are committed to providing cost-effective services without compromising our clients' needs.

"We come to you proposing to give nothing but the highest quality to your moments as they pass."
This phrase captures our philosophy. In fact, that phase is written in our reception area, allowing anyone who walks into our office the ability to know the attitude and approach we have about our clients. We are here to provide you with outstanding, personalized legal expertise so that you can concentrate on living your life, not on dealing with legal issues.
The Ashmore Law Firm offers legal expertise in the following practice areas:
You've worked hard, and with proper estate planning, you can preserve your assets for your children and grandchildren. We can help you write a will, form a trust and advise you on the most effective way to protect your assets. We also offer free educational presentations on estate planning, wills and trusts.
Probate is a process that occurs after someone dies. The probate process involves both paperwork and court appearances and ensures that the deceased person's will is legal and valid, identifies and inventories assets, pays off creditors, and distributes assets according to the terms of the will. Because our principal attorney, Joseph E. Ashmore, Jr. has 12 years of experience as a Probate Judge, we understand the probate law from both sides and can ensure that the process goes smoothly.
A guardianship in Texas allows you to protect a loved one. Guardianship allows you the peace of mind to know your loved one has food, clothing and shelter and is taken care of. Guardianship in Texas also allows you to protect the assets of your loved one. A guardianship is a court process whereby the court appoints someone who has legal responsibility over the care and management of a person, or estate of an incapacitated individual who cannot act for himself or herself. A guardianship should always be the last resort. If there is ever any less restrictive alternative or less costly, then that is always our first recommendation.
Our attorneys handle a range of family law matters, including: prenuptial agreements, divorce, and the dissolution of marriages of couples with no children or with adult children. Our lawyers can assist with the distribution of assets, alimony, and spousal support agreements. We work with accountants, counselors and business appraisers to make sure your children are supported and your interests are protected to the greatest extent possible.
