When you choose the Law Offices of Susan M. Edmonson, you get more than just an adviser for your legal needs. Susan and her staff take pride in providing personal service above and beyond what takes place in a courtroom.

The law office offers two easily accessible locations in Galveston and Seabrook as well as quick appointment times, usually within 24 hours.

As a full-service law office, the attorneys and staff handle a wide range of legal needs, including divorce, child custody issues, probating wills and more.

Because of the nature of these legal needs, the attorneys and staff take care to provide a sympathetic, compassionate environment to ease the burden for their clients.

“We often see people on pretty much the worst day of their lives,” said Susan, who has been practicing law for more than 30 years. “Our goal is to help people not just through their legal troubles, but to help them rebuild and refocus their lives.”

Family Law

It is an unfortunate truth that January is one of the biggest months for divorce filings in the U.S. When it comes to divorce and child custody issues, the Law Offices of Susan M. Edmonson works diligently to get to know all clients, understand their needs, and listen all of their concerns.

Child custody, child support and visitation rights are emotional issues for all parties. Susan and her staff will vigorously defend the rights and interests of every client and their children.

Their goal in custody cases is not to hurt the other party. On the contrary, they are dedicated to the interests of the children and to reaching an agreement that will be accepted and honored by both parents.

Susan and the attorneys who work alongside her are experienced in all aspects of family law, including divorce, child custody, child support, grandparent issues, and adoption.

The law office combines effective counsel, personalized attention, and more than 30 years of experience in divorce settlement negotiations and courtroom litigation. In the family law arena, they work to avoid court battles by seeking creative solutions to clients’ problems.

Estate Planning and Probate

Probate is the legal process by which a deceased person’s property is transferred to the intended heirs. If you do not have a will, you run the risk of leaving your family consumed by the Texas probate process for years. This can be an expensive, difficult and long road.

Estate planning can help your loved ones avoid this type of lengthy battle, and the start of a new year is often a great time to do this.

At the Law Offices of Susan M. Edmonson, you can take advantage of a package of services that provide for your death as well as illness or injury that may leave you or your spouse incapacitated.

They will assist you with drafting wills, powers of attorney, living wills, probate of a loved one’s estate, declarations of heirship, guardianships and name changes.

For families who are grieving the death of a loved one, the law office’s attorneys and staff are experienced and skilled in providing gentle guidance during the probate process. During this transition period, they strive to ensure the transfer of assets with minimum difficulty for the family.
