Business & Contract Law.

Starting a business can be a daunting process and there are numerous issues to consider when determining which business form will best suit your needs. Alternatively, you may already be in business and require legal services to maintain and further business interests and relations. Our law office provides services pertaining to business formation, contract drafting and review to facilitate your business goals.

A contract is a legally binding agreement between parties. Parties enter into contracts for various reasons; to obtain a promise that the other will do something and at other times, to secure the promise that they will refrain from something.

Many contract provisions anticipate complications that may or may not arise between the parties. However, their presence in the contract is essential to define the terms of the agreement and discourage breach. Having one additional line in a contract can mean the difference between years of litigation or not and determine whether relief is available for breach. In addition, there are several factors to consider to determine whether a binding contract exists.

If contract has been created, it must also be valid. Only a valid contract will do its job, to protect you with its provisions. Legal counsel should be sought for contract review prior to entering into any contract so that you can understand its implications.

Criminal Law.

Being investigated, detained or arrested on a charge can be a terrifying experience. Dealing with law enforcement can be intimidating and navigating the criminal law context on your own can be an ordeal. The stakes are high, your liberty is in jeopardy and you need solid representation to defend you in and out of court.

If you are not a U.S. Citizen, the immigration consequences of criminal conduct can be severe – you can be deported. Many crimes have extremely harsh consequences in the immigration context. Immigration law defines the term “conviction” very broadly. This means that even though taking Deferred Adjudication is not considered a conviction under Texas law, it is a conviction under federal immigration law. This can have serious consequences on your ability to stay in the U.S.  Even if you have a valid green card or are legally present in the United States, a conviction or an admission to criminal conduct can take you straight into deportation proceedings.

Contact the Law Office of Aisha Khan-Sajjad to secure a diligent defense, whichever stage your case may be in (investigative, pre-trial, trial, or post-conviction). If you are a non-citizen, we will evaluate your criminal case and work to negotiate plea structured to protect your immigration status and prevent negative immigration consequences.

Immigration Law.

​Federal immigration law ​provides a means to gain lawful entry across U.S. borders. You or a relative may be entering for a visa, for employment, or to pursue your educational dreams. Immigration law defines eligibility, restrictions and limitations on entering the U.S. and maintaining lawful status. When rules are violated, there can be severe consequences, such as bars to re-entry and/or deportation. In addition, criminal activity can also have collateral immigration consequences, which can mean that even a finding of guilt without a conviction can jeopardize your ability to remain in lawful status. However, there are mechanisms available to request a waiver through immigration law for certain complications.

Further, immigration law provides for immigration benefits to people who are entitled to stay in the U.S. on a temporary or permanent basis. These benefits include: granting of U.S. citizenship to those who are eligible to naturalize; authorizing individuals to reside in the U.S. on a permanent basis; and providing aliens with the eligibility to work in the United States. Contact The Law Office of Aisha Khan-Sajjad for reliable counsel on immigration law and benefits as well as minimizing the immigration consequences of a criminal charge.

Wills & Probate Law.

One of the beauties of being an adult is making your own decisions and those of your dependents. If we fail to express those decisions before life passes us by, the State of Texas has defined a formula in its Intestacy Statute. Texas intestacy laws may not reflect how you would have liked for your assets to be distributed. In addition, your will can appoint a guardian to care for your minor children. If you have not expressed your wishes and appointed a guardian for your minor children, Texas probate court will assign a guardian for you.

Five basic estate planning documents you need to have:

  • Texas Last Will and Testament
  • Texas Durable Power of Attorney 
  • Texas Medical Power of Attorney
  • HIPAA Authorization
  • Texas Medical Directive to Physicians

Wills

There are specific legal requirements to executing a valid will, so it's essential that your will is drafted and executed properly. The preparation of a will and supporting documents are essential to ensure that your wishes are followed and your family is protected in the event of your incapacity or death. Luckily, this is not a long process. An initial interview to determine your situation and needs will suffice to sketch out the parameters of your will and supporting documents. Contact the Law Office of Aisha Khan-Sajjad to prepare your Last Will and Testament, your voice to have your last wishes known and provide you and your family with peace of mind.
 

Probate

If your loved one had a Last Will and Testament at the time of death, the probate process is the court-supervised process to authenticate that Will and review it for its validity. Through the probate process, the decedents assets will be located and valued; the decedent's final bills will be paid, such as estate taxes and/or inheritance taxes (if any); and any remaining assets will be distributed to the decedent's heirs. The process requires an application to probate the will and seek letters of testamentary, preparing proof of death and oath documents and setting and attending a hearing to probate the will. The probate process is straight-forward, so long as the Will is uncontested.
If you have lost a loved one and need to probate their will, contact the Law Office of Aisha Khan-Sajjad to handle the probate process so that you can you can focus on building your future and moving forward.
