San Antonio Estate Planning (wills, trusts, powers of attorney) Lawyer

Overview

Alison Packard is an attorney whose life experiences have prepared her to help people with disabilities. Alison attended BYU Law School where she met and married a fellow classmate, Dan Packard. They went to classes together, studied together and finished law school on the same day, both graduating with honors. As Alison was preparing to take the Texas bar exam, her life changed dramatically when she gave birth to a beautiful daughter, Angela, who suffered a massive brain hemorrhage during delivery. Alison immediately postponed her plans to take the bar exam and devoted all of her efforts to taking care of Angela and her other children. When Alison returned to work, she helped litigate some very substantial cases worth millions of dollars. However, she soon discovered that her real passion is helping people with disabilities. Alison understands and loves her clients. She knows what it is like to fight for a child with special needs. She knows how complicated and confusing the government bureaucracy can be. She understands how important it is to have services and resources in place that will enhance the quality of life for an individual with disabilities.

Alison's life has been a challenging and rewarding journey-full of struggles, disappointments, triumphs and great joy. Alison has now been licensed to practice law for over 25 years and she focuses her current practice on special needs planning, including trust and estate work, government benefits, guardianship, alternatives to guardianship, and general probate work.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
