Working as a lawyer involves the practical application of abstract legal theories and knowledge to solve specific individualized problems. In the state of Texas, the legal profession is regulated through the State Bar of Texas. Real estate brokers and salespersons in Texas are explicitly prohibited from engaging in the practice of law, unless they are also licensed as an attorney. This means that they can only provide buyers and sellers with standard form contracts without the ability to change the substance of those documents. Because we have agents that are also lawyers, those agents are capable of providing buyers and agents with legal advice and modifying the specific terms of those standard form contracts or completely drafting new contracts and addenda should it be necessary or required. Feel free to inquire about the attorneys who offer their legal services independently of Prominus to find out more about their rates and availability.
