Helping you and your family
plan for life’s “What-Ifs”
No one wants to think about the day when they are no longer around to take care of their family. It is equally overwhelming to try and put a plan in place for things that may never happen — life’s “what-ifs” — and have answers for every scenario that could impact how your assets are distributed and if your family’s needs will be protected. But there’s no denying that estate planning is one of the most important things you can do for your family. And the best part is that you don’t have to travel that road alone.
Caitlyn Ashley Law in Denton, Texas, offers compassionate, client-centered estate planning and probate services that account for all of life’s what-ifs. As someone who has been in your shoes, we are acutely aware of how reassuring it is to have someone on your side who knows this area of law, can walk with you, and is willing to shoulder all the legal “stuff” so you and your family don’t have to.
From simple wills to complicated trusts, probate, guardianship, and more, we put a plan in place that is flexible and best suited for your specific needs — now and well into the future.
Think of estate planning as a personalized game plan for your family members that accounts for everything — even the unknowns — and ensures your wishes are carried out in the event you die or become incapacitated. Having a carefully crafted estate plan isn’t just for the wealthy, either. It’s for everyone, and the documents that fall under this umbrella (wills, trusts, powers of attorney, special needs trusts, burial directives, and more) go a long way toward protecting your assets and everyone you love.
Probate is the legal process of administering an estate and legally transferring a deceased person’s assets and property to their family members or beneficiaries. How complicated that process gets is dictated by whether or not that loved one had a valid will in place before they passed away. Working with our wonderful clients to navigate the often complicated probate process and give practical, compassionate advice is our passion.

Sometimes due to aging, disability, or injury, our loved ones need help with everything from managing their affairs to ensuring their safety. Guardianship means appointing someone as the chief caregiver for the health and well-being of a protected person. Going before a judge and requesting to take someone’s rights away is often seen as the last resort, and many people wait until it’s too late. If you are thinking about guardianship but don’t know where to start, call us now.

Compassionate and Competent: Caitlyn Ashley
I received a personal recommendation to consider Caitlyn Ashley as our probate attorney for my mother’s estate. During the first 10 minutes of our initial meeting, I knew I had chosen the most compassionate and competent attorney to conduct the probate process. It was evident that she truly cared about my questions and took the needed time to answer them thoroughly. She gives great advice. Her lines of communication are always open through phone calls or emails. I am looking forward to having her complete a will for my husband and me in the near future.
