April Nordhaus has an understanding of and deep care for the community and its residents.

April Nordhaus is recognized in the region for her compassion while providing expert counsel in estate and probate cases. As one of the premier McKinney estate planning lawyers in the area, she also handles probate and guardianships in Collin County and surrounding areas.


Our will was terribly out of date and no longer provided the legal and financial protection we wanted for ourselves and our children. April spent a significant amount of time discussing our intentions and made numerous recommendations. Under her professional guidance we crafted a complete set of extremely specialized trusts. We recommend her services without reservation.

April made a difficult subject easy and straightforward. With her help, we successfully created a will and a revocable trust. April was thorough in talking us through it. She explained everything in understandable language with warmth and personality, while still maintaining a high standard of professionalism.

We’ve used April for our estate planning and our son’s POA. She’s very easy to work with and lays things out in such a way that the hard legal concepts are very easy to understand. I highly recommend her and her legal services.

In 2006 April prepared our Last Will and Testament, Powers of Attorney, Disposition of Remains and other Estate Planning documentation. April met with us several times to explain the process and listened carefully to us and on our wishes. In 2021, the person we named as our Will Executor passed away and it caused us to reconsider all of the documents April created. We provided April with our updates through email and worked with her assistant to complete our changes and updates. April and her assistant were very professional and a pleasure to work with throughout the process. I know April does much more than Estate Planning and we highly recommend her as an Attorney.

After a sudden life change, I needed to get my affairs for my children and I. I was referred to April Nordhaus. I was greeted by Allison, who is her amazing legal Assistant. Allison always was in contact with me on any and everything. All correspondence was always done efficiently. When I came in to go over affairs with April, she made me feel comfortable and calm. These were major life decisions I had to make. I will never regret having this team on my side. Will always use them and refer them.
