Here for you, here to help.


In today's time good service is hard to find. I'm in the air conditioning business and constantly hear customers complain about the horrible service they receive from someone. I was worried about this exact issue when it came time for me to find a divorce attorney. I'm a man that was caught off guard when my wife of 17 years up and left me and my son without a warning. She took our daughter as well. So you can imagine how important it was to get counsel as soon as possible. I also needed to get my daughter back and take the right steps to get custody. I was extremely pleased from the first meeting with Ms. Bogdanowicz she has been a God send. She has been on top of every aspect of my case from the start. I have the cards stacked against me being a male fighting for custody on the state of Texas. I have been impressed with the advice and strategy Ms Bogdanowicz has given. I am pleased to say that I was able to get my daughter back within two weeks of my wife leaving. I have primary custody and have won every aspect of my case thus far. Ms. Bogdanowicz has been an exceptional attorney and has made me feel that I’m her only client. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an attorney. I would hate to think where I or my kids would be if I received subpar counsel. Luckily I don't have to because Ms. Bogdanowicz has made sure that my kids and I are exactly where we need to be. My case looks good and my future with my kids does as well. Thanks you Ms. Bogdanowicz for investing your time and effort to make sure that my kids future and mine is bright and happy.

A Full-Service Estate Planning Practice

Most families need a testamentary plan but either do not realize it or do not want to give it much serious thought. The reality is that neither approach changes the need. In fact, neglecting estate planning will put your loved ones at risk and leave important issues, such as the care of minor children, the distribution of assets and the administration of your estate, in the hands of a judge or court-appointed representative — instead of in your own hands or those of someone you trust.

Albin Roach has a team of attorneys who are experienced in all facets of estate planning and probate law. We tailor our services to meet the needs of clients with straightforward and complex estates alike. Contact estate planning attorneys in Plano, Texas, about your estate goals today.

Creating an Estate Plan

At the basic level of estate planning, our recommended plan is for clients to have a will with an optional contingent trust for minor children, a statutory durable power of attorney, a medical power of attorney, and a physician’s directive (living will) in place. Find out more about wills and trusts.

For estates involving the estate or gift tax threshold amounts, or involving businesses, blended-family situations or other complex factors, the individual needs and our services tend to be more sophisticated.

Beginning with a discussion of your goals and a thorough review and analysis of your assets, our lawyers will help you to evaluate your options and to choose the estate planning tools that are most appropriate for your individual needs and objectives. From there, we can proceed to draft the necessary documents, establish trusts and continue to keep your estate plan up-to-date as either the law or your family’s dynamics evolve.

The Probate Process

Our law firm assists families with the process of estate administration, or probate. We can help to ensure that your loved one’s assets are distributed according to his or her will, that debts are settled, and that other estate planning matters are settled. Find out more about the probate process.
