Entering her fourth decade as a practicing attorney, Gretchen Benolken has chosen to divide her professional time into a small handful of areas. First, she spends some time in the service of long time, loyal, existing clients with various needs. Second, the majority of her time is spent with new clients, providing legal services in two specific areas: a) the drafting of wills and trusts for the purpose of protection of assets, and b) representing clients in the probating of the estates of their deceased loved ones and guiding them step-by-step through this judicial process during what is a most difficult and challenging time in their life.
Gretchen is a Texas attorney whose career spans more than three decades and several practice areas, and who undertakes each matter with intensity, ethics, and integrity. Her forte is precision in drafting legal documents to best protect her clients and help them avoid potential pitfalls and disputes. As a certified mediator, Gretchen finds personal fulfillment assisting clients in resolving disputes, rather than litigating them. For those matters that could not be resolved informally, Gretchen has significant experience, and a long string of successes, for her clients in various administrative and judicial proceedings.
Gretchen feels that the culmination of her 30-plus years of experience, combined with her narrow focus in regard to practice area, allows her to provide rock-solid legal representation with a very personal touch to each and every client.
