This Houston, Texas based Estate Planning law firm was started by Richard C. Shanks in 1997. Rick left one of the largest law firms in Texas where he was the head of the Estate Planning section. In leaving that firm, Rick has been able to carry on a family tradition of entrepreneurship which has enabled him to work closely with clients.

Having seen the apprehension many people have about the process of planning their estate, Rick developed a simplified “Picture Diagram” approach which visually walks the client through the process. This unique “Picture Diagram” process helps to ease a client’s confusion and fears about the planning process.
