At the Law Offices of Charles A. Crocker, I am dedicated to working with you to help you protect, preserve, and pass on all that you have worked so hard for. Board Certified in estate planning and probate law, I provide informative, knowledgeable advice and guidance to individuals and families in Houston and surrounding areas.
My practice focuses on protecting the rights and interests of my clients – from effective estate planning services to business law services.
-In my estate planning practice, I will work with you one-on-one to design a custom-tailored estate plan that fits you and your family’s particular needs. There are no “boiler plate” estate plans here. I have extensive experience developing family partnerships for the distribution and transfer of assets and property. A family partnership will help to minimize the tax burden and administrative expenses on financial transfers within your family. I also assist with succession of family businesses to named successors.
-In my probate and estate administration, I guide families through the process of getting a loved one’s will verified by the probate court, and his or her liabilities liquidated and assets distributed to heirs either according to the decedent’s wishes or according to the distinct laws of Texas (if a will or valid estate plan was not established).
-In my tax planning practice, I assist with tax return preparation, tax planning, including structuring financial and real property transactions to minimize taxes. I also represent clients in United States Tax Court to litigate disputes over taxes owed.
-For my business and commercial clients, I provide advice and representation on a wide range of corporate transactions. I work closely with you to help you and your business succeed from incorporation to dissolution, and everything in between.
-In my real estate practice, I work with residential homebuyers and sellers, and businesses on commercial property purchases, sales, leases, and development.
