In my practice, I work closely with my clients to understand all aspects of their businesses and what is important to them, ranging from their core values to their goals and the people who help them meet those goals. All businesses and individuals are different and a “one size fits all approach” to legal issues does not work. This understanding is vital to developing strategies to help my clients meet their goals.
With her diverse experience and client-focused mentality, Jeryn advises businesses, individuals, and financial institutions in matters ranging from real estate to sales and acquisitions and to estate planning and probate. Having practiced commercial litigation for several years, Jeryn is skilled in anticipating and recognizing common contract-related pitfalls and proactively works with her clients to mitigate risks without frustrating their goals. In each matter she touches, Jeryn’s clients reap the benefits of her intense personal investment and unwavering devotion to developing creative strategies to protect her clients’ goals and needs.
In her daily practice, Jeryn assists business owners in all stages of business ownership, i.e., from entity formation to aiding growth to assisting with negotiation and sales. As part of this practice, Jeryn negotiates and prepares complex commercial leases and purchase and sale agreements. She also prepares other bank finance and lending documents.
Jeryn routinely assists clients with estate planning and the administration of estates in probate. She takes the time to get to know her clients and to understand what they want and need in their estate plan, prepares clients for decisions regarding their care and the management of their property for any period of incapacity, and guides her clients through what sometimes seems like an overwhelming probate process. Her experience includes probating clear-cut estates based on well-prepared wills, to more complex heirship determinations in the absence of a will. Her knowledge of both real estate and probate enables her to unravel complex real estate title issues that arise when a property owner dies without a will.
Jeryn’s determination led her to graduate summa cum laude from Texas Tech University School of Law, during which time she has served as an extern for Justice Eva Guzman of the Supreme Court of Texas. Following law school, Jeryn served as a briefing attorney for the Honorable D. Gordon Bryant, Jr., U.S. Magistrate Judge for the United States District Court Northern District of Texas.
