After 10-years as a Telecommunications Manager, Jeff Butler decided to change his stars and pursue a career he was passionate about – the law. He quit his job, packed-up his wife and four children, and returned to school in Moscow, Idaho.
Jeff graduated near the top of his class from the University of Idaho, College of Law, where he served as Editor of the Law Journal for Critical Legal Studies, Volunteered in the Low Income Taxpayer tax clinic, the Small Business Clinic, and served as the student body Sargent at Arms.
Jeff interned at Utah District Court for the 2nd Judicial District under District Judge Brent Smith, and as a civil prosecutor with Ada County in Boise, Idaho.
Following law school, Jeff chose to focus his practice on Estate Planning and decided Rockwall, Texas would be the perfect place to raise his children and grow his practice.

“Our family had a great experience with Jeff Butler. Jeff helped us with wealth management and planning to protect our family.“
“My wife an I used the Butler Law Office to prepare our wills, a revocable trust, powers of attorney, etc. In our first meeting, Jeff did an excellent job of walking us through a series of questions to help him understand our needs and to help us make an informed decision about what would be best for our situation. Once that was determined, he went to work to produce the necessary documents and then spent the time to make sure we understood exactly what we were agreeing to do. While making plans for when you pass into the next life is not something that most folks relish, it is an important part of the legacy we provide our families. Jeff made the whole process educational with a sprinkling of humor that set us at ease. We both feel we made an excellent choice in using his firm and that he had our best interests in mind. In addition, the administrative support provided by Angel Butler helped create a pleasant and enjoyable customer service experience. We would heartily recommend the Butler Law Office.“
“I cannot say enough great things about Jeff. He was extremely knowledgeable and helped me tremendously by handing everything for my estate planning. He made the thought of a difficult processs seem easy. I now feel 100% confident that what I’ve worked for my entire life will be put in the right hands when I pass. Angel is also amazing. She was able to break down legal terms so I could understand each part of the contract. They are a great team. I received my documents in a beautiful personalized binder which left me with nothing more to do than put it in a safe place.“
“Jeff has been very responsive to our needs and provides us with our requests in a timely fashion. He meets us at a location that is close to us and works his schedule to match ours. He has taken the time to fully understand issues at hand and gets personally involved with knowing the details. He remembers the little things we mention and if he doesn’t know something he will say it up front and do the necessary research to get the answer we need. We have been very happy with his services and have used him for probate, estate creation and business set up documents. We will continue to use his services when other issues arise.“

Our attorneys focus on specific aspects of the law, primarily Estate Planning and Business formation. This focus allows them to understand the finite details of both simple and complex situations, quickly and efficiently. We work constantly to keep up on the latest tax and estate laws to ensure the plan you put together will continue to work for you, even as things change.
When you sit down with us, we will always: factor in the probate process, possible tax ramifications, and the validity of the pieces you’ve put in place. Then we help you understand how to minimize the amount of Court involvement and the taxation of your estate, with the end goal of putting together the plan that is right for you.
One more thing to think about, without a valid AND properly filed Will, Trust or other Estate planning document, the Probate court decides how your property will be distributed and assigns a stranger to handle the process. Ensure your wishes are followed, after you pass, by putting your wishes in writing with assistance from an experienced Estate Planning attorney.
