As a partner at our firm since 1978, Mike Berkley has helped thousands of clients throughout Texas find ways to protect their assets, pass property to loved ones, efficiently administer estates and protect their vulnerable loved ones. Specifically, he assists our firm's clients with matters involving:
- Estate planning: We create wills, health care directives, medical powers of attorney, financial powers of attorney and many other type of planning instruments to help you direct how your care will be handled and how your assets will be distributed when you pass away.
- Probate: As a probate lawyer, Mr. Berkley often serves as an appointed executor/administrator in probate matters. We draw on his experience in these matters to help our clients administer estates as efficiently and problem-free as possible.
- Guardianships: We have helped many concerned clients obtain guardianships, which grant them the right to make decisions about an incapacitated or incompetent loved one's health and financial well-being. A guardianship is commonly necessary in cases involving dementia, Alzheimer's disease and other degenerative diseases that destroy a person's ability to make sound decisions for himself or herself.
Mr. Berkley's work in these matters and various issues related to family law has led to him being AV Preeminent peer review rated* through Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating.
