Chasity W. Cooper practices in the areas of estate planning, probate, trusts and guardianships.

Providing clients peace of mind in knowing they have arranged their personal and financial affairs for their loved ones in the most efficient, cost effective, and tax advantageous way possible is Chasity's top priority. Chasity provides this to her clients through: wills; trusts; medical and financial powers of attorney; business succession planning; insurance trusts; co-habitation agreements; pre and post marital agreements; and complex techniques that minimize estate taxes, such as sales to grantor trusts, grantor retained annuity trusts, and family entities.

She counsels clients through the legal issues surrounding the loss of a loved one. She guides executors and trustees through the administration of estates and trusts while advising them of their fiduciary duties. She also represents beneficiaries and advocates for their rights to ensure their inheritance is protected.

As individuals progress through the various stages of life, estate planning documents may need to be reviewed and revised.  Some circumstances which may require estate planning adjustments include:

  • Adoption or birth of a child
  • Death of a family member
  • Substantial changes in assets
  • Divorce
  • Marriage
  • Relocation
  • Formation of a business entity

Chasity is frequently asked to review estate planning documents prepared by other attorneys to determine that they are current, complete and correct.

Chasity is board certified in estate planning and probate law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.  She earned her Masters of Law in Estate Planning in 2009 and continuously strives to provide the best service possible to her clients. Chasity’s experience practicing in both rural towns and large cities has allowed her to meet and help people from all walks of life.
