Texas Estate Planning, Guardianship & Probate Law Firm


Ford + Bergner LLP is an innovative boutique estate, guardianship and probate law firm serving Texas from offices in Houston, Dallas and Austin. Dedicated to providing a superior level of service, our highly experienced and effective attorneys focus on providing practical solutions tailored to the individual needs of our clients.

What is a boutique law firm?


A boutique law firm is group of attorneys whose practices are narrowly tailored to one area of law, or a few closely related areas. By limiting their practice to specialized areas rather than handling a wide variety of generalized cases, as many firms do, attorneys in a boutique law firm can provide more in-depth expertise in an efficient manner.

Because our estate planning, probate and guardianship attorneys devote their legal practices exclusively to those areas of law, they are well-prepared to assist you with everything from creating simple wills to complex estate planning and administration, as well as with the mediation and litigation of estate, probate and guardianship disputes.
