Houston Estate Planning and Probate Attorney
Vicki Whitlow Thomas

Compassionate probate law practice

I have been working in law since college. I started as a legal secretary, and then worked as a paralegal in the trusts and estates section of a large Dallas firm before starting law school. I chose to focus exclusively on estate planning and probate law because this area lends itself to long-term relationships with clients and their families and friends. I have been pleased with my choice for over two decades in practice.
