Attorney April Nordhaus is one of those women who seems to do it all and do it well. She’s a mom, daughter, and sports enthusiast with a bustling legal practice. Yet she still finds time to volunteer at church and school. “When a client tells me, ‘It’s complicated, I get it,” she said. “I understand just how complicated life can become, even with the very best of intentions.”

Collin County born and bred; April has made estate planning and probate—not a sideline—but the cornerstones of her practice. “With the availability of internet legal services, people get a false sense of how simple their will should be,” April said. “But effective planning goes far beyond the production of documents. A complete estate plan begins with a conversation about a client’s personal goals and wishes, followed by a discussion of pertinent family matters, and a detailed estate analysis. So, this is one area where it’s not wise to DIY.”

Now more than ever, when the future seems so unclear, it’s easy to feel emotional and vulnerable when faced with questions of estate planning and probate. That’s when you need a highly qualified, experienced, and level-headed professional in your corner. Throughout her 15+ year law career, April has been recognized for her compassion, integrity, and legal acumen as she cares for the best interest of children and families through the practice of estate planning, probate, and guardianship law. But for April, it’s just about doing what the Lord has called her—and equipped her—to do.
