Cara has been such an amazing attorney supporting my mom through her process to obtain separation. My mom had a divorce from my father who I’ll never speak to ever again and made this process as smoothly as possible. Even though her last days with us this year since my mom was diagnosed with cancer soon after her divorce , Cara did such a wonderful job helping transfer guardianship of my sisters over to me, it has never been a difficult process on her end. Thank you for all you do!

My sister is not mentally well, and Cara helped my parents with obtaining custody of my niece. Cara is very personable and my parents adored her. She really cared about our case. Thank you, Cara!

Highly recommend Cara Surell: My wife and I needed to have our will and estate planning documents completed in the right way and Cara was excellent throughout the process. Answered my never ending questions, communicated effective and was patient. She explained everything in detail, what we needed and more importantly, what we didn’t need.
I would use her services again happily.

Thank you to Cara for making our Estate Planning process run as smoothly as possible. I’ll be recommending your firm to friends and family!



Having recently moved to the North Austin/Cedar Park area, I more or less rolled the dice on selecting a law firm to do some estate trust work for me. I couldn’t have chosen better!  Lawyer Cara Surell handled my needs quickly and professionally. I truly felt that there was a genuine interest in my situation and a sincere desire to accomplish what I wanted and needed done.
