We are a different kind of Estate Planning & Small Business Law Firm
GP Schoemakers, PLLC is a family oriented, Texas Law Firm, experienced in Trust & Estate Planning and Small Business Law in the Greater Houston Metropolitan area.
Our firm strives to provide a personalized, high-quality, creative, and result-oriented legal advice to each of our clients. We serve as a primary resource and partner in all aspects of clients’ Trust & Estate Planning, as well as their Small Business Growth & Development. Because we are selective about whom we work with, each client is guaranteed to receive personalized attention. We take a genuine interest in our clients, their goals & objectives and believe that our Holistic approach to legal services will not only allows us to create order but also makes it possible to approach matters from a broader, more innovative perspective. We do this because you are important. Your family is important, and so is your future!
We start all our comprehensive legal services by taking the time to meet with you so that we may create and implement the best course of action for you and your family, or ensure proper business and contingency planning. We are confident that with our counsel, knowledge, and expertise, you will be able to decide the best course of action to take in protecting your family (and your business, if you have one).
A Lifetime Relationship with your Attorney
GP Schoemakers, PLLC is unique and nothing like other law firms, we prefer to get to know you personally, and build a Lifetime Relationship. Many law firms in the Houston enter into an attorney-client relationship with the mindset to “disengage” from their clients once they have completed their legal work, mostly treating their clients like a docket number and not the unique individuals they truly are. Our services just get started at the signing of your documents.
We provide family meetings to explain your plan to your family members and successor trustees so they will understand exactly how your plan will carry out your wishes in the future. We offer you the ability to make minor changes to your planning documents at no additional charge during the first 90 days, just to make sure you are comfortable with your decisions; during the same period, we will answer any questions you have about your plan, again, at no additional charge.
Moreover, when your estate plan includes a trust, we will not leave you to fend for yourself after the trust document has been drafted. We will help you to fund your trust entirely, whether it is with our guidance or because you have hired us to fund your trust entirely. This service includes drafting a Trust Transfer Deed for your home, creating and having you execute an Assignment of Personal Property to your newly formed trust, assisting you in re-titling any brokerage or other accounts, and obtaining beneficiary designation forms for your life insurance and retirement accounts, as necessary.
We offer many additional services to ensure your plan is truly right for you, such as kids protection planning, pet trusts, and Texas NFA gun trusts, just to name a few. We even offer two unique annual Signature Client Membership Programs™ to help ensure your family wealth plan or business growth plan will work, not only in the short-term but when you need it the most.
Signature Client Membership Programs™

Similarly, after completing a Legal, Insurance, Financial and Tax Audit – our small business clients are offered to join our Business Growth VIP Membership Programs™.
