About Nikki Davis

Nicole B. Davis ‘Nikki’ is a partner with Davis & Lyssy, PLLC. Nikki practices in estate and guardianships, as well as probate, trusts and fiduciary law. With nearly 20 years of experience, Nikki grasps the nuances of the law and uses her understanding to protect your rights and the rights of your loved ones.

Estate & Guardianship Attorney Dedicated to Your Protection

Nikki works with families in Texas that are struggling through loss and estate confusion. Most of her clients need help with securing assets or seeking the protection of a loved one’s health and finances. They are also seeking clarity about their rights under certain documents and legal instruments.

In all matters, Nikki begins by assessing your situation and goals. She then reviews and analyzes any documents or instruments relative to the estate.

If your situation involves a family member or estate in danger, Nikki immediately files the necessary documents for protection. If your situation requires guardianship, she uses the least restrictive method possible to preserve rights and independence.

You can trust Nikki to do what’s best for you and your family. She’s a problem-solver, always looking for the best methods of protection no matter the situation you’re in or the worth of the estate in question.

Throughout her career, Nikki has successfully represented numerous parties in guardianship, probate and trust disputes, including fiduciaries and beneficiaries facing litigation throughout Texas.

Nikki also has experience in mental health law. She advises families through voluntary and involuntary commitment proceedings and serves as an advocate for those with mental illness.
