LGBT Estate Planning Issues in Texas

Estate planning is especially important for members of the LGBT community because many unique issues specifically affect them. Given the fact that the state of Texas does not recognize same-sex marriages, if your partner dies without an estate plan, you will have no rights under the law. It is essential that you speak to Katine Nechman McLaurin before this occurs.

We speak often on a number of issues affecting our clients and community, participate in many activities that benefit the community, and have prepared publications on these issues.
