“You are a very interesting mix of tiger and kindness”
I would like to testify as to the qualifications and expertise of my company’s attorney, who has also become my personal counsel. His approach is direct, honest and committed to his client. With a dedicated work ethic, he tenaciously works in the interest of his client with a take-charge attitude that demonstrates his knowledge, honesty, enthusiasm and caring.
We have been working with John for the last couple of years as a business transaction attorney. He continues to be, and has been, nothing but timely, professional, and knowledgeable in all services rendered for us. He is meticulous and thoughtful in every aspect, and we would highly recommend his services and still continue to build our relationship with him. His alacrity is continually a pleasant surprise.
After looking at several attorneys to handle my case, I selected John. It was the best choice I could have made. He has given me peace of mind and has handled my case with pure professionalism. I would definitely recommend using John to my friends or family if asked.
Austin’s Premier Community Property Litigation Attorney
Living in a Community Property State Has Serious Tax Implications
The state of Texas is a community property jurisdiction, meaning that property acquired during a marriage or union is considered to be mutually owned by both spouses. This has significant tax implications for married and divorced couples. If one spouse incurs unpaid taxes, the IRS has the right to attached levies and liens to the community property as payment for the debts. As such, your spouse’s debts becomes yours — even if you are presently divorced. So long as the property was acquired during the marriage, it is considered community property of both spouses.
