Experienced and Affordable Probate, Guardianship and Estate Planning Attorneys

Our Law Practice

Our law firm handles many legal areas, including injury, probate, guardianship, estate planning law.

Our Philosophy

Life is too short to be tied up in court for any reason.

Our Approach

The Hatchett Law Firm specializes in bringing the power of the law to the public at an affordable rate.  We are committed to understanding what results you want and to helping you understand what actions we can take on your behalf. We will work with you every step of the way to make sure that you understand the choices you are making and feel empowered to make them.

We serve clients from across the nation but we limit our practice to matters within the state of Texas.  Our most frequent counties of service are Brazoria County, Fort Bend County, Galveston County, Harris County, Liberty County, Montgomery County, Polk County, and Waller County.  When appropriate, members of our team will make house calls, hospital visits, and evening or weekend appointments to serve the immediate needs of our clients and their loved ones.  We don't work around the clock, but we make every effort to be accessible when you need us.   We don't practice law to get rich, we practice to serve our community.  

A Dedicated Team in Your Corner

 In addition to the attention your case receives from an experienced attorney, you will also have a dedicated case manager assigned to your legal matter to ensure that exceptional service is delivered to you directly at an affordable rate.   Every week, our legal team meets internally to discuss our cases and service goals.  This means that no matter who is directly managing your case, the expertise of the whole team weighs in on your case.  

Legacy of Success

Our founders each have more than 30 years of legal experience and have a proven track record of success. During their varied careers, Michael and Cynthia have served local courts, local municipalities, global corporations, multimillionaires, restaurants, prominent community leaders, sports and celebrity figures, survivors of family members who died from negligence and malpractice, young people in jeopardy of losing their freedom, and countless children who needed a strong voice in court. This depth of experience equates to more than just knowledge - it fortifies our PURPOSE. We help individuals, families, and business owners leverage our resources, experience, and knowledge of the legal system to accomplish their goals.  We use that experience to help you obtain the results you need.
