Our experience offers advantages unknown to some attorneys.
Legal Experience in a specific area that serves you well. Our team of lawyers at Spencer, Johnson & Harvell, PLLC, is committed to providing dependable legal services to our clients in Dallas, Fort Worth, and in Denton and Collin counties, and any city or county throughout the state of Texas. There are nuances to estate litigation that allows for statutory procedural legal maneuvers to turn a small town (home town) situation to your advantage, if your attorney knows the law and has the experience to know when and how to assert those maneuvers. Attorneys that do not practice in our area do not always know those rules and do not have the experience of dealing with different clerk's offices to make sure everything that must happen timely is done properly.
