Texas Probate Attorney – More Than Knowing the Law

Being a good Texas Probate Attorney is more than knowledge of the Texas Probate Code…

I believe being a good lawyer requires more than knowledge of the law.  A good attorney returns phone calls, responds to emails in a timely fashion, and takes the time to listen to clients’ concerns and needs.  In short, the best attorneys are well-rounded people.

A recent article in the Texas Bar Journal features me, Isaac Shutt.  The article highlights my interests outside the practice of law.  These hobbies make me a more well-rounded person, and, in turn, a better attorney for my clients.

If you didn’t already know–I enjoy many things outside the law office.  I enjoy woodworking, building things, riding my motorcycle, working on my cars, playing clarinet in the Richardson Community Band, getting involved at Dallas Bible Church, volunteering with the Richardson Chamber of Commerce and Leadership Richardson, volunteering with committees at the Dallas Bar Association, and spending time with my wife and three boys.

None of these things directly impact my legal practice, but they all help me relate to my clients better.  I understand my clients’ real-world goals, fears and concerns–because I have them, too.You can read the Texas Bar Journal article here:
