To all our current and potential clients, we hope you and yours are in good health. Given the current state of our economy and the fight against the COVID-19 virus, many are under significant amounts of stress. Cotton Bledsoe is committed to do its best to help minimize that stress. The Firm is taking significant measures to protect the health of its personnel and many are now working remotely – this includes our attorneys, paralegals and legal secretaries. Our remote capabilities give us access to our systems and we are able to do everything for you that we could prior to this new (temporary) reality. Where appropriate, we have the ability to conduct most meetings virtually.

We will get through this time together. Thank you for your continued trust and please do not hesitate to contact any of our firm’s attorneys directly or through this website. We appreciate all of you and wish you the best as we navigate these unprecedented challenges together.

Kimberly joined the firm in 2020. She is an associate attorney practicing in the Estate Planning, Probate and Trust Section as well as the Business and Corporate Law Section. She is licensed to practice in both Texas and New Mexico. 
Areas of Concentration: 

Estate Planning
A significant portion of Kimberly’s practice is devoted to the preparation of wills and the creation and modification of trusts. Kimberly assists her clients in creating, implementing, and modifying estate plans that accomplish clients’ key objectives and goals regarding the disposition of estates and assets or to address changes in family or financial situations. She prepares specialized estate plans designed to reduce or avoid estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer taxes.

Incapacity Planning
Kimberly spends a significant amount of time advising clients with making decisions related to their care and the management of their property in preparation for any period of incapacity. She advises clients about Directives to Physicians (Living Wills), Medical Powers of Attorney, Statutory Durable Powers of Attorney, and Living Trusts. In addition, she advises clients about the option of pre-need guardian designations.

Probate, Estate and Trust Administration
Kimberly also dedicates a significant part of her practice to advising fiduciaries and estate beneficiaries in matters relating to the probate of estates of decedents. She advises surviving spouses of decedents regarding their statutory rights and advises fiduciaries, such as executors, administrators, and trustees, regarding the disposition of decedents' estates in both contested and uncontested matters. In addition to original probate proceedings in Texas and New Mexico, Kimberly also handles ancillary probates of non-resident decedents who owned property in Texas or New Mexico.

Asset Protection
Kimberly's practice also involves advising clients concerning lawful asset protection techniques, including the establishment of family limited partnerships, separate property trusts and the preparation of pre-marital and marital property agreements.
