[12/19/18]   Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Forbes & Associates. Our office will be closed the 21st of December through the 2nd of January 2019. My office phone number is my cell, so I will respond to calls, voice messages and e-mails at [email protected]. If I don't not receive your telephone call leave a message and I will get back to you.

[08/21/18]   I have unfortunately been away from Facebook for a year due to my messenger account being hacked. If anyone received a rude and lascivious message from me it was not me. I was hacked and chose to remain off Facebook for a period of time. I want to announce that I have moved my office to Conroe, Texas. I am excited about this move. My practice has also expanded to include family and criminal misdemeanor cases. So, give me a call if you need my help.

[07/09/17]   Today I want to opine on traffic tickets. While it is not necessary for you to hire a lawyer when receiving a moving violation or traffic ticket as it is commonly referred to. Hiring an attorney is beneficial in two ways.

One, you do not have to wait in the courtroom for your name to be called to go discuss disposition of you citation. Your lawyer get quicker resolution and normally a better deal.

Secondly, if you want or need the matter dismissed, then an attorney can take it to trial or get it dismissed by re-setting until the police officer does not attend the court setting to testify.

I charge $125 flat fee, meaning you pay $125 only if it gets disposed of or is dismissed after no more after 2 re-sets.

Lastly, please remember that you must appear at the 1st appearance date with or without an attorney. If you fail to appear at what is called arraignment or 1st setting, then a warrant for your arrest will be issued. Be careful in the jurisdiction where the ticket is issued because if pulled over or detained for questioning you will likely be arrested. Along those same lines, if you have a warrant, you can go to the courthouse clerk and pay your fines in full and not be arrested. They want your money not to arrest you.

Bottom line, meet your traffic ticket issue head on and take care of it. Most if not all jurisdictions accept payment plans. Good luck and as always call me if you need my assistance.

[06/15/17]   While the summer usually means vacation time, beach time, family time and trying to survive the vicious summer heat, I have seen a burst in new cases here at my firm. In case you don't know me, I am Chris Forbes. I have been an attorney for eleven and half years and still learning. I specialize in probate, guardianship and Estate planning. However, I also handle family law, business law, traffic ticket defense, civil lawsuits (prosecute and defend) and criminal law (misdemeanors mainly )

Today I wanted to post a thought on informal or common law marriage in Texas. Now these type of marriage can be established for heterosexual and same sex couples. They are much easier to prove where minor children are involved and they can be difficult to prove overall.

The elements of informal are that the couple cohabiting, holding out as married , which is not had to prove in most cases.

The last element is very difficult. It is an agreement to be married. It stands to reason that if you had an agreement to married then why try common law. Well, we don't live in a perfect world and people often "move in together ", live their lives and just never get around to getting ceremonially married ( church wedding or courthouse wedding). So if you need help

[01/31/14]   A big shout out to Harry and Delona Laxton of Laxton Law who have agreed to lease an office in their office to FAPLLC!Thanks!

[01/15/14]   Change of plans for FAPLLC. The head honcho (me) decided (after prayer and reflection )that signing a 3 yr lease on Class A space in Kingwood is not what is good for FAPLLC nor Christopher Cole Forbes at this time. My motto for this year is " gonna get lean and mean for 2014". That goes for my law firm and my personal life. As Christopher Cole Forbes goes so goes FAPLLC. I hope to find a way to keep my phone number for the law office....details to follow.

[01/11/14]   What a week at FAPLLC! New Year, new clients, new hope...looking forward to a great 2014. We are ready to assist you with your legal needs. Moving my office to Kingwood Feb 1st. Stay tuned.

[12/14/13]   Shout out to my staff! Bri, CC, Kristi, Marta ... Great job this year! You guys are the best! Thanks for making FAPLLC WHAT IT IS and putting up with Mr Crabby Pants (me in case you were wondering). Looking forward to 2014 and the new office in KW. All the best to you and yours this Holiday season and GO COOGS!

[12/11/13]   Merry Christmas! Happy Hannakuah! (Apologize if misspelled ) Happy Kwanza! Merry Festivus! Happy New Year! Looking forward to big changes for Forbes & Associates in 2014! Stay tuned. In the meantime, call if you need legal counsel...today!

Impromptu Holiday come and go! Table set come on by! Merry Christmas from Forbes & Associates!

[12/05/13]   At the Original Ninfas on Navigation with Ms. Marta Martin of counsel to firm celebrating a successful mediation. Call us today so we can resolve your legal needs.

[11/13/13]   I hope that potential clients understand that when I refuse to give legal advice over the telephone or via e-mail or the internet, that there is a good reason for it. Without going in to great detail, as an attorney I have to be careful not allow a potential to perceive that a attorney/client has not been established by a phone or e-mail type conversation. In addition, I can not properly diagnosis and assist a potential client with their legal issue over the phone or via e-mail.

I offer 30 minute FREE consults in my office. Any time after that is billed at my hourly rate of $200 per hour. Should a potential client agree to retain me, then I credit any billable time past the 30 minutes to the legal representation I provide. I want to be helpful but must be professional and precise.
