Attorney Profile

The founder of Bragg Law PC, Melanie Bragg has a diverse practice that encompasses several areas of the law. Located in Houston, Texas, her client base consists of individuals and businesses throughout the greater metropolitan region. Admitted to practice before all Texas state courts, Ms. Bragg has received a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo for her successful track record and high degree of ethics.

Ms. Bragg focuses a portion of her practice on estate planning and probate administration. In this regard, she has reviewed and prepared wills, trusts, financial and health care powers of attorney, and advance medical directives. When representing the beneficiaries of a decedent's will, she helps guide them through probate in order to ensure that the estate is properly administered and that the process is completed as quickly as possible. Ms. Bragg has handled hundreds of probate cases during her career, and her experience in probate court has also included being appointed as guardian ad litem for elderly clients whose health has declined.

Ms. Bragg possesses extensive family law experience as well, particularly in child custody disputes and other cases where a child's well-being is in jeopardy. She often acts on their behalf in cases where they are too young to be allowed to express their own opinions before a judge, and she also works with them during adoption proceedings. Another aspect of Ms. Bragg's practice involves providing advice and counsel to entrepreneurs, starting with business formation and extending through contract review and regulatory compliance. Her experience also includes juvenile justice and child protective services matters, and she is a trained mediator. A graduate of The University of Texas at Austin, where she majored in political science and received a Bachelor of Arts cum laude, Ms. Bragg's legal education came at the University of Houston Law Center.
