Simple Will

A Last Will and Testament is something people often put off for no good reason. The process of drafting and executing a simple will, medical power of attorney, living will and statutory power of attorney is simple and quick. There is no reason to not protect your family by having these documents in place. Colette sees first-hand the expense and difficulty caused for family members left

Child Welfare  

Colette is on the Denton County court appointment list for cases brought by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, also known as CPS and she has been representing parents in working to regain custody of their children from CPS and representing children who have been removed from their parents by CPS since 2008.  These cases are critically important not only from the perspective of maintaining a family unit but also in protecting the children who are vulnerable and need compassionate, effective representation to ensure their safety and well-being.
