MY BUSINESS IS ALL
ABOUT SUPPORTING

YOU.

There are lots of reasons you might find yourself needing an attorney’s help.  Give me a call or shoot me an email— if I can’t help you, there’s a pretty good chance I know someone who can.

It’s a different world now.  Economic, social, and political pressures require a robust protection of your wealth, and I believe asset attorneys have a duty to inform all clients on the necessity of protecting your assets, whether it’s a large pot or one that’s still growing.   

It’s not as simple as it used to be.  Today, businesses are faced with what feels like endless headaches that take time and attention away from the company generating revenue.  From startup to selling to protecting company assets, it’s critical to have business counsel assisting with your company’s important decisions.  Serving as either outside general counsel or on a per engagement basis, I make it my business to be invested in yours.

DILIGENCE. PROFESSIONALISM. RELATIONSHIP.

Implementation of estate and wealth transfer planning designed to fit your unique needs.

And a love for seeing it through.

 

In many cases, the type of legal work I do is a long term affair, so relationships matter when deciding who you want structuring your assets and getting your estate in order, launching or restructuring your business, or helping you put the pieces together when things don’t seem to be going your way. 

Part of being an advocate is being available when you need your attorney the most, and as a boutique law firm, I only accept a limited

number of new client engagements each year so I can remain focused on providing you with quality representation.

ABOUT ME

I fell in love with the law—it’s complex and constantly changing but when you master it, opportunities await.  I chose estate and business law because it’s a relationship-based practice and I’ve always worked best in a collaborative environment.  I also chose it because aside from family, your assets and your business are just about the most important things in your life, and I appreciate the responsibility and seriousness in getting things done right.

My mind is constantly churning on how to best position my clients. It’s not my style to sit on the sideline waiting for direction—I get in the thick of it with you, burn the midnight oil, and do what it takes to advance solutions that aren’t a simple boilerplate approach. 

What matters most to me is not only doing a great job for you, but also seeing the results of the work we do together.  I get just as much satisfaction from seeing my clients succeed as they do.

Before forming Dawson Law LLP®, I began my legal career working for the Honorable Paul W. Green of the Texas Supreme Court and later for the distinguished Austin-based law firm of Giordani, Swanger, Ripp, & Phillips, LLP.  As a boutique law firm, I assist a select group of clients with the structuring and protection of your assets, designing and implementing estate plans to help ensure an efficient distribution of your estate, and a wide array of business planning matters.  I don’t advertise much, and you likely found the firm’s webpage from a referral or stumbled across my business card.  Because I want to provide the best representation possible, I only accept a limited number of new client engagements per year.  Don’t let that stop you from reaching out though—if I can’t help you, I know a lot of folks and can likely point you in the right direction.
