We help ensure that your family and your business stay out of court and out of conflict
Beverly R. Davidek // Owner / Attorney
Beverly R. Davidek is Mom to three awesome young men: Gerard, Steven, and Nick. She’s been a practicing attorney for more than 20 years, and most of those years of practice have focused on areas that directly affect families — especially families with children: special education law, estate planning, guardianships, and general counsel for family-owned businesses. She has also served as an Assistant District Attorney for Bexar County, prosecuting child abuse and neglect cases.
Beverly and her husband Dirk are also entrepreneurs, certified life and health coaches, international best-selling authors, health and wellness junkies, and world travelers. Their mission is to make happy lawyers and happy clients the norm and not the exception.
Beverly understands firsthand the importance of having all of your “ducks in a row,” so you can sleep at night, knowing that you have done all that you can to take care of your family — from a legal and financial standpoint, as well as from a spiritual and family legacy standpoint. She is a former teacher, and she approaches law with the heart of a teacher. She’s not satisfied until her clients are fully educated to make informed decisions about the things that matter most to them and their families.
