Get to know your Estate Planning Attorney
Throughout her career, Ana has devoted herself exclusively to the fields of estate planning and probate.
What sets the Law Office of Ana M. Pace apart from the rest?
Ana’s reviews speak for themselves, and she continues to offer the values that her clients raved about to her current and future clients.
Ana recognizes that clients want an attorney who has enough time to take their calls and answer their questions in a way that they understand.
Unlike other law firms, you can count on Ana to limit the types of cases she takes so that your case gets equal time and attention. This approach guarantees that each client’s case receives the equal time and attention it deserves. Her goal is to navigate you through the estate planning and probate process as efficiently as possible. The availability of an attorney’s attention is crucial during estate planning and the probate court process.
Ana knows that maintaining this high level of service means setting aside ample time for each client. As a result, she is moving away from the conventional “hourly” model in estate planning. Instead, she offers extended periods for each client during intake and review & signing sessions, ensuring clients never feel rushed. Clients can be rest assured that even if they need an extra hour or two for Ana to explain the estate planning process, there will be no extra charge.
At an early age, Ana knew she wanted to go into the legal profession. While she was raised on a tree farm in Farmersville, Texas, she eventually made her way down to Richardson, Texas where she attended Richardson High School’s Law Magnet Program. At the Richardson High School Law Magnet Program, Ana was a Judicial Intern for Judge Hoffman in the 68th district Court of Dallas, Texas.
Before law school, Ana earned a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Houston graduating Magna Cum Laude. While in undergrad, Ana was an avid volunteer at Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston Cabrini Program, where she volunteered hundreds of hours. She led workshops for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and assisted clients in obtaining asylum, residency, and citizenship.
Ana graduated from the University of Houston Law Center with a Doctor of Jurisprudence. She concentrated on clinical work in the Entrepreneurship and Community Development Clinic and was awarded the Clinical Legal Education Association Outstanding Clinical Student Award based on her excellence in casework, client interaction, and her contribution to the clinical community at her law school. Ana also worked in a prestigious family law firm during law school and interned at the Texas Fourteenth Court of Appeals.
During law school, Ana thoroughly enjoyed her wills and trusts class. One of her professors in law school suggested that area of law would be a good fit for her which ultimately attracted her to focus her career on the practice of wills, trust, and probate.
In her free time, Ana finds joy in the tranquility of her garden and lending a hand at her husband’s family ranch in Brownwood, Texas. Together, they relish in riding ATVs across the sprawling property and jointly creating food plots to sustain the local wildlife. Amidst the joys of the countryside, their most treasured undertaking is raising their two-year-old, Henry. They’re introducing him to both the simple pleasures and deeper wonders of life. Ana, being bilingual, is also teaching him Spanish and English, expanding his world and opening new horizons for him.
