Summary

I grew up in Clarksville, Arkansas, where I learned the most important parts about lawyering: How to work hard, how to to work smart, and how to work out problems with other people. The rest I picked up in law school and my first few years of practice, but I firmly believe that most of what makes me a good advocate I learned growing up. Before law school, I attended Arkansas Technical College and earned a bachelor’s degree in business. This is where I learned about business, which guides my approach to lawyering—I like to emphasize efficiency, customer service, and communication. The law is not merely a business to me, but it definitely is at least a business. I serve my clients best when my firm is running like a machine. I did well in law school and earned the distinction of “Honors” upon graduation. I also got my M.B.A., which has been helpful starting a law firm. But grades are only so important. I also tried to build an excellent reputation with members of the legal community when I clerked for the Arkansas Attorney General, Federal Public Defender, and various firms in Little Rock. I have built my practice around these relationships and the reputation I have for honesty, candor, and care. I handle estate planning and probate, along with any litigation issues that accompany those fields. I feel a little unique in my ability to wear both of those hats. Most lawyers want to either draft the trust or fight about the trust. I can do both. I co-founded my firm Wilson & Haubert, PLLC, three days after I received my results from the Bar exam. It sounds crazy to say it like that, I will admit. If I could go back and do this over, I suspect I would do many things differently, but I have never regretted my decision to start something new. It has not been easy, but it was the right decision. I am excited about the future of law and the future of my law firm. As we continue to adopt technology, expand into new areas, we hope to better serve our clients.

Legal Answers
44 Questions Answered

Q. How do I pay my deceased mom's debts?
A: You most likely need to speak to a lawyer. Even if the house fits, you may have issues with title once you try to sell. A lot of title companies will require the house to be probated even if it fits within the small estate guidelines. You should speak to a lawyer about the debts owed and the assets of the estate to figure out the best course of action.
Q. I'm being sued an think it's unfair an trying make me pay far more than owed an want file bankruptcy to stop it
A: You need to call a bankruptcy lawyer. Filing bankruptcy will help with all the issues you mentioned in your question.
Q. My mom passed with no will I'm bout to lose her house to foreclosure can I file bankruptcy to save house
A: Yes. You can file Chapter 13 to save the house. Are you the only child? Did anyone else inherit.
Q. What document is needed to make an amendment to the trust to add a successor trustee?
A: You may not need an amendment to do so, if the successor was named in the original trust.
Q. I live in Ark. If my husband dies without a will does everything of his go to his children before his spouse?
A: No. First, you have to see how everything is titled. If it was titled as husband as wife, then it will go to you before his children. If it was in his name and he had named beneficiaries, then it will go to the beneficiaries. If it was in his name without beneficiaries, then it will go to his spouse and children.
Q. If a legal guardian is found guilty of exploitation of an elder person- do they get removed from their custody?
A: Yes. I am not sure what happened, but if Adult Protective Services was contacted and found the guardian was not acting appropriately, then you can get the removed. This may not happen automatically. You may have to petition the court and remove the previous guardian and get appointed yourself.
Q. I have a chapter 13 that I can not pay it will be discharged in 30 days. What should I do
A: Yes, call your Ch 13 lawyer and discuss converting to a Ch 7.
Q. Can I settle an estate only using the small estate affidavit or do I need to get a new EIN and open an estate account?
A: If the estate qualifies as a small estate, then you can settle without opening an estate account. Under the small estate statute items should be delivered to the affiant and the affaint is liable as a trustee to the other heirs and devisees. It also is a practical problem of dealing with banks and other entities. You probably want to consult a lawyer to save you time and trouble.
Q. Can an executor get paid by the estate that is in probate in arkansas ?
A: Yes.
