Shandon is dedicated to serving as trusted advisor to families and businesses and guiding his clients in making the very best legal, financial and business decisions throughout their lifetime and ensuring the long-term wellbeing of their families. Though he focused on litigation in his law study and early career and successfully won approximately one million dollars in aggregate settlements for his clients in several high profile cases, he has discovered his true passion is helping his clients build a strong foundation for their success and preserve their family legacy. He has developed a highly personalized practice in estate planning and business planning to help individuals, families, and business owners. Shandon Phan has been designated by the Family Wealth Planning Institute as a Creative Business LawyerTM and a Personal Family Lawyer®. As a Personal Family LawyerTM, Shandon helps families with young children, special needs families, business owners, unmarried couples and individuals with protecting their family wealth and legacy. With a unique ability to listen to client concerns, he has translated his client’s vision into a plan that meets their desires and exceeds their expectations. Shandon is also a Creative Business LawyerTM, helping entrepreneurs and business owners with the myriad of legal, financial and tax issues that arise, and designs a plan to ensure that the business not only has the best chance of success, but continues to “live on” long after the founder is gone. He is also a member of the Wealth Counsel, a nationwide organization comprised of estate planning professionals, including attorneys, tax and financial planners who utilize cutting edge techniques for sophisticated planning. He is the author of Legal Guide for Families (currently being published) and frequently speaks to both public and private groups as well as Attorneys, Accountants, and other financial professionals. Shandon is proud to be among a new breed of entrepreneur-minded, dynamic and pioneering attorneys who embrace the newest technologies and constantly seek new ways to provide the best values to their clients. In addition to serving clients at his offices in Houston, Texas and the Gulf Coast, he also serves clients around the country and internationally with online estate and business planning legal services — via phone, email and a secure online platform. Coming to America as a young immigrant, Shandon appreciates his American freedom and strives to give back to his community and country. He has volunteered his service to local and international charities, held many civic leadership positions, founded a chamber of commerce, served in voluntary bar associations, and been recognized by U.S. Congress and U.S. Coast Guard for his legal contributions and service to his country. In his spare time, he practices martial arts, enjoys the outdoors and running, and has completed three Marine Corps marathons. He aspires to compete in an Ironman full triathlon one day.
