I recently needed Estate Planning Services and contacted the Hailey-Petty Law Firm, in Austin. The legal services I received were outstanding! Mrs. Hailey-Petty was very understanding, helped guide me through the entire process, always answered my questions, and just made me feel so comfortable with the entire process. Her staff were wonderful, prompt and always made sure that I was kept in the loop with everything. I could not have asked for a more professional, understanding law-firm and will request their services in the future. It is so difficult for a business to continue to provide excellent and consistent service and during this pandemic, but this law-firm was able to do it! I highly recommend their services for your Estate Planning needs!

We met with Pam to establish a will to safeguard our children’s future. We had an amazing experience with the Hailey-Petty Law Firm! We had lots of questions, and Pam was very patient and thorough in her responses. We left feeling confident that all our wishes for our children and our estate were well articulated and will be accurately carried out.

In short: a professional experience with a sense of caring. Changing paperwork from Michigan laws to Texas felt overwhelming until finding the Hailey-Petty Law firm. The initial, as well as subsequent conversation(s) with the receptionist were reassuring and helpful. I preferred to do the preparation work virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This was accommodated with ease and timeliness. Pamela was knowledgeable and compassionate in the discussion of the estate planning. Her legal aide was patient and very helpful in walking me through re-titling my vehicle. The signing of the papers was accomplished with all the safeguards for COVID-19 as I hoped for, in order to meet all the lovely people I had been virtually in contact with. All in all, a satisfying and effective experience.
