We are pleased to announce that our own Jennifer Elskes has once again been named to the SuperLawyers list for 2017. She has been rated at the very top of estate planning and probate attorneys serving the Houston metro.

It is not the first such honor for her. She was also selected to SuperLawyers in 2008 and 2016.

None of this is a surprise for her clients or colleagues, who have long noted and admired her depth of legal knowledge, and for her skills working with people moving through life’s most challenging situations.

Ms. Elskes advises individuals and families, along with small, mid-sized and larger closely-held businesses, including family limited partnerships.

She assists clients with every phase of estate planning, probate, and trust law. Clients seek her out when they need to draw up a will that is clear and effective, or to create a trust that achieves their special objectives, including generation-skipping trusts, insurance trusts, bypass trusts, grantor-retained annuity trusts, special needs trusts and other structures. She also assists in drafting effective marital property agreements, and in challenging them when they are improperly written or unjust.

A partner at Stephenson Fournier, Jennifer has been licensed to practice law since 1979. She obtained her law degree from The University of Texas School of Law in Austin.

Please join us in congratulating Jennifer on her achievement.
