One of the benefits of working with a small, local law firm such as the Law Offices of Susan M. Edmonson is the personalized attention and care clients receive.

The law office has been helping Galveston County residents with their many and various legal needs for more than 25 years. No matter what the case, or the individual’s income, Susan and her staff work closely with each client to help them achieve their goals.

With two locations, in Galveston and Seabrook, three attorneys and a helpful and knowledgeable support staff, the Law Offices of Susan M. Edmonson is ready to help you with all of your legal needs, including Family Law, Estate planning, Probate, Criminal cases and mediation services. 

Divorce and Family Law

Texas law requires that the best interests of the children be considered in divorce. The Law Offices of Susan M. Edmonson adhere to that requirement as they strive to gain personal insight about each of their clients. 

Susan and her attorneys take time to get to know their clients and listen to their situations and concerns.

When you choose the Law offices of Susan M. Edmonson to represent you — you get a child custody attorney who is dedicated to avoiding nasty, expensive litigation.

Instead, the family law lawyers focus on the interests of the children and an agreement that will be accepted and honored by both parents. 

Susan M. Edmonson is Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in the area of Family Law. Only 7,000 attorneys out of 70,000 have earned the right to be publicly recognized as Board Certified specialists in one of 21 select areas of law. 


One of the law office’s experienced divorce attorneys, Rebecca Murphy, is certified in family law mediation. She offers experienced mediation services, acting as a neutral third-party for couples trying to find an amicable solution during a divorce. 

Rebecca works with couples confidentially in a private office setting at convenient times for both parties. She helps to identify each person’s specific needs and concerns, encourages both parties to listen to each other without attacking, and determines an effective solution.

Estate Planning and Probate

If you die without a will and you have a house or other significant property, the probate process in Texas is difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. However, for those people who have a will, probate in Texas is a simple and user-friendly process.

The estate planning attorneys of the Law Offices of Susan M. Edmonson offer a package of services that provide for your death, as well as illness or injury that may incapacitate you or your spouse during your lifetime. 

They can help you with services including wills, powers of attorney, living wills, probates of decedent’s estates, declarations of heirship, guardianships and name changes.

Probate is the legal process for transferring title to property after the death of the owner of the property. It is the culmination of the estate planning process and the method by which a person’s property is transferred to their heirs and beneficiaries. At The Law Offices of Susan M. Edmonson the attorneys and staff are skilled at helping families through this difficult transition period and in assuring the proper transfer of assets with the minimum amount of fuss.
