Laws create rights and responsibilities. Laws affect transactions, standards and procedures. Because of the vastness and complexity of laws today, the average person has more than a little difficulty understanding the implications of how laws affect everyday life.

The American legal system, however, is built on the concept that “ignorance of the law is no excuse.” You cannot avoid legal liability just because you have no knowledge of the content of the law. The burden, therefore, is on you to have at least a basic understanding of the laws under which you live.

This site is designed to help you understand the fundamental principles of Texas law. My books, reports, forms, and articles are written in plain English and, where applicable, contain step-by-step instructions. Whether you want to handle a legal issue yourself, or you just want to be better informed when working with an attorney, this site and my publications will help you.
