Alicia D. Meinzer practices primarily in the areas of wealth planning, asset protection, probate, estate and trust administration, and tax law.  Her main goal is to establish long-term relationships with her clients, and she takes great pride in assisting her clients create and implement tailored plans to accomplish their key objectives, create effective business succession plans to preserve family harmony and carry on their family legacy for future generations, and to reduce or avoid fractionalization of land and mineral interests.

Alicia enjoys working directly with a wide variety of clients, ranging from individuals, families, closely-held businesses and large financial institutions, and offers a unique perspective to those of her clients in the agricultural field.  Alicia, a fifth-generation West Texas rancher, credits her upbringing in production agriculture, coupled with her real estate and oil and gas title experience, to her heightened comprehension of sophisticated estate planning, business succession, wealth migration, asset protection, tax, and probate issues for her clients who own ranching and farming operations, livestock, and land and mineral interests associated with such operations.

In addition, Alicia is an experienced equine law attorney and regularly assists her clients in the acquisition and management of high-net-worth horses for showing, racing and breeding purposes.  Alicia advises her clients on the organizational structure of equine holding companies and on the preparation of equine contracts, including lease agreements, purchase and sale agreements, bills of sale, indemnification agreements, training, boarding and breeding contracts, liability waivers, releases, and associated risk-management practices.

In her free time, Alicia enjoys raising and showing cutting horses and running a commercial cattle operation with her family.
