Business Description

ATTORNEY AUSTIN, TEXAS

I am an attorney with 44 years of experience in the practice of law. I represent business owners and individuals in general business matters and litigation. I form Limited Liability Corporations and prepare and review contracts for businesses.  I also provide estate planning services which include discussions about the manner in which you wish to dispose of your property, consideration of the tax impact of such dispositions, recommendations for effective means of carrying out the disposition of your property in accordance with your desires, and preparation of documents necessary to carry out your chosen estate plan, including a Will and other documents which may be appropriate, such as a Directive to Physicians, a Medical Power of Attorney, a Statutory Durable Power of attorney, and a Declaration of Guardian for your children. I probate wills and represent estates in the probate courts..  I can also assist you with the preparation of beneficiary designation forms for your non-probate assets, such as retirement accounts and life insurance.  

My Recommendations

BJ has helped some of my clients with their LLC set up and other legal needs. He has done a great job with each referral. BJ is up front, direct and has a passion for what he does. I love his approach. He cares about helping his clients and truly likes to be timely, efficient but provides high quality and affordable legal services. I would definitely recommend him if someone is looking for an attorney's assistance.

from Anne-Marie Cancienne

I continue to use BJ Walter for all legal matters relating to my business. He responds quickly, stays in communication with me so I know what the status is and completes all work accurately on time and at or under budget. I highly recommend BJ for all your legal needs. If he cannot do it he will refer you to someone that can.
