LGBT Matters

LGBT Law involves the handling of legal issues for lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, or transgender clients and their families. The Phillips Firm, PLLC understands the unique needs of the LGBT community and serves clients in the following areas:

  • Estate Planning: Assisting clients and their families with estate planning and probate issues that are unique to LGBT families as they prepare for retirement, face deteriorating health, or bury a loved one.
  • Housing and Employment Discrimination: While sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination are not expressly prohibited by the majority of Texas and federal civil rights laws, there are tools available to LGBT clients to deter discrimination. An attorney knowledgeable in these mechanisms can add leverage to complaints and aid clients to the greatest extent legally possible.

Because the unique needs of LGBT clients runs the gamut of legal issues, should your particular matter fall outside the scope of the firm’s practice areas, the firm is prepared to partner with and/or make referrals to other LGBT-friendly attorneys in North Texas.
