Our Firm Helps You Prepare For Life

What makes our firm different is that we were built with the needs of growing families in mind. We understand you are BUSY, you are growing, you are planning for a life of prosperity and you value ease, convenience and efficiency. You are raising children, and caring for elderly parents, while also working hard to build your own nest egg for a lifetime of support. You want to know you’ve made the best decisions for your family and that your plan will work when your loved ones need it most. You want to make sure your minor children would be raised by the people you choose, and never by anyone you wouldn’t want, and that your teens and adult children are properly prepared to care for you and what you leave behind.

You want to feel confident that you’ve made the right choices, and handled everything so that you aren’t leaving behind a mess, when something happens.

Our Team of Experts

We encourage communication with our clients, so you never have to be afraid to call with a quick question. In fact, most of what we do is billed on a flat-fee basis, agreed to in advance. We all love surprises, but not when it comes to legal fees.

Owner / Attorney

Beverly R. Davidek

Beverly R. Davidek is Mom to three awesome young men: Gerard, Steven, and Nick. She’s been a practicing attorney for more than 25 years, and most of those years of practice have focused on areas that directly affect families — especially families with children: special education law, estate planning, guardianships, and general counsel for family-owned businesses. She has also served as an Assistant District Attorney for Bexar County, prosecuting child abuse and neglect cases.

Beverly and her husband Dirk are also entrepreneurs, certified life and health coaches, international best-selling authors, health and wellness junkies, and world travelers. Their mission is to make happy lawyers and happy clients the norm and not the exception.

Beverly understands firsthand the importance of having all of your “ducks in a row,” so you can sleep at night, knowing that you have done all that you can to take care of your family — from a legal and financial standpoint, as well as from a spiritual and family legacy standpoint. She is a former teacher, and she approaches law with the heart of a teacher. She’s not satisfied until her clients are fully educated to make informed decisions about the things that matter most to them and their families.

Of Counsel Attorney

Amanda Batsche

Amanda Batsche completed her undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University, College Station and went on to complete her law degree at St. Mary’s University School of Law. While at St. Mary’s she received a Dean’s Scholarship and was inducted into Phi Delta Phi Legal Honors Fraternity. She also participated on the external advocacy mock trial team and advanced to the semi-finals in the Wayne and Maxine Scott Negotiation Competition. Upon graduation she was awarded a Pro Bono Legal Services Award.

As a recipient of numerous awards (see her accolades below) throughout her legal career, Amanda is on the mission to empower families by educating parents and guardians on how to protect their families, the importance of estate planning documents, and designating guardians for your children. She excels in guiding her clients through the overwhelming labyrinth of financial and legal decisions to create the essential documents that take care of their families. Her previous experience in litigating probate and guardianship cases has given Amanda the perspective and shown her many pitfalls in the implementation of an otherwise well drafted plan. Amanda has experience advising individuals in various stages and places in life, planning for young professionals, individuals with special needs, blended families, newlyweds, and retirees.

Amanda loves learning about people’s stories, and she loves how stories can connect even the most unlikely of friends. As a young military wife, life was quickly thrown into perspective for Amanda. She understands the stress, weight, and importance of making these difficult decisions. As a mother, she understands the constant worry and desire you have to protect and provide for your children.

She’s also known for her love of urban living, cooking, baking, and helping her husband with their little “urban homestead,” including learning about gardening and raising chickens.

Amanda is passionate about serving our community by empowering families and protecting children through educating their caregivers. By educating families about estate planning (or as you will often hear her call it, essential planning), she is able to help people take an active role in what happens to their assets and loved ones long after they have lost their own voice. It’s her hope and desire that every family in our community know about the legal protections they can put in place to care for their families, especially their minor children.

Amanda’s greatest passions are raising three little boys, learning people’s stories, and having life-giving conversations.

Estate Plan Coordinator

Cheyenne Bell, J.D.

After graduating from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law in 2006, Cheyenne spent time practicing in the fields of trial law, appellate law, and oil and gas law before making the decision to retire her career for a while to stay at home with her children. However, after the sudden death of her husband in 2017, Cheyenne discovered firsthand how important it was for young families to have estate plans in place.

Falling back on her legal degree, Cheyenne made it her mission to educate young families about
the hows, whens, and whys of estate planning. She has had several articles published based on her experience as well as been interviewed on podcasts and spoken at several women’s events.

About a year after her husband’s death, Cheyenne opened her own small practice writing estate plans before joining the Davidek Law Firm as an Estate Plan Coordinator. Cheyenne feels blessed to be able to divide her time between continuing to help people with their estate planning needs and homeschooling her children. In her “free time,” Cheyenne is a voracious reader and an aspiring author. She also has an unhealthy obsession with vintage home décor, gardening, chickens, and DIY projects. Oh, and coffee.

Lots and lots of coffee.
