Carl J. Mangine

Attorney at Law

Before focusing my practice on estate planning and guardianship law, I litigated for insurance companies for 4 years. Once that industry started to change, I turned my attention toward everyday people and wanted to help assist them. For the past 10 years, I have been dedicated to guiding my clients through the legal process for areas that may be hard for them to handle alone. I received my J.D. from the Texas Wesleyan University School of Law, and I have been licensed to practice in Texas since 2003.
