Wills and estate planning aren’t always straightforward. Some clients may have a lot of assets or a blended family, for example. 

When people plan their wills and estates, it’s important to hire an attorney who understands the process inside and out. If you’re seeking an attorney in Texas, then you’ll need someone who understands wills and estates in light of Texas law. 

As complicated as these topics can get, however, it’s always a good idea to plan for the future. The right attorney can help you keep things as simple as possible for your family. 

Sarina Hager handles wills and estate planning in Tyler, TX. She can guide you through the process and answer your questions. 

Will Drafting and Modification

Estate Planning 

Estate planning, much like drafting a will, includes documents that don’t apply until after death. However, estate planning differs from will drafting because it also includes documents that go into effect while you’re still living. 

During the estate planning process, you and your attorney will discuss all kinds of concerns, including living wills/directives to physicians, medical and financial powers of attorney, guardianships, healthcare, finances, assets, and more. 

Estate planning is a commitment, and it involves many steps. It’s easy and understandable to get overwhelmed during this process. Sarina carefully walks her clients through each step, and she makes herself available to answer questions. Whether a client wants to begin estate planning or change existing estate documents, Sarina leverages her legal knowledge and patience to help the client create a plan they can understand and have confidence in.

Advocate for Families 

A key aspect of wills and estate planning is making sure that your family members are treated fairly. You’ll want to make sure that your family members, including your children, will be taken care of in the event of your death or incapacitation. As a result, your attorney will act as a co-advocate of sorts for your family members. That’s why your attorney should know what it takes to be an advocate. 

Sarina understands family advocacy. She has advocated for children and families for decades, both inside and outside her legal practice. Serving families is the most important part of what Sarina does.

What our clients say

We were apprehensive when we learned you would not be handling Ashley’s court appearance last Friday and Cary Christie would be handling the hearing. Our apprehension proved to be unfounded. Cary did an exemplary job. Prior to the hearing, she spent considerable time getting to know Ashley and the details of the case. As to be expected, Ashley was very nervous about appearing in Court and telling her story to the Judge. Cary put her at ease and helped Ashley get through what was a very emotional and very stressful situation for her.
We were well pleased.

Sarina Hager has been an exemplary attorney and advocate for us and our son when going through custody court. She maintains a professional yet compassionate demeanor and will work long hours to prepare for court. She exceeded our expectations when we were unexpectedly taken back to court for a custody modification suit. A suit in which we ended up going from a 50/50 order and with her help we ended up with primary custody and serving the best interest of our son!

-Mark Davis

I recently went through a divorce and we chose to hire Sarina as our attorney. She actually just represented me but my ex-husband and I had pretty well agreed on everything upfront so Sarina was kind enough to meet with both of us each time. Sarina was so sweet and caring and made the process as painless as possible. Everything was done in a timely manner and she was very detail-oriented, addressing each one of our needs. We really appreciated her kindness, professionalism, and advice. Divorce is so difficult, no matter the circumstance and I’m so glad that I chose Sarina to represent me during this time as it was a perfect fit.

-Kelly Brooks

I hired Sarina very quickly after an unexpected custody modification. I was terrified and worried and Sarina was so understanding. She fit me in to have an appointment and then worked non-stop to help me through a very scary process. She advocated strongly for me and my children. She always had their best interest at heart and always reassured me when I had my moments of fear and doubt. She was responsive and would even email me on weekends or after hours as needed. She is very detail oriented and helped me catch little details in our orders to protect me and my children from future litigation. She advocated for me very well in mediation and helped me to understand the ins and outs of my custody orders so I could continue to protect myself and my children. She was well prepared and kept a case file with her when we were in mediation. I would absolutely recommend others in the situation I was in to contact Sarina. She helped me through a very painful and scary time in my life with compassion and understanding and she fought for me and my children with dignity.


If you want a smart, kind, driven, and wise attorney then search no further. Sarina Hagar was a huge blessing for our family. Her faith in the Lord was evident in how she treated us and our son. She handled our case as if it was the only one she had. She made us feel like a priority and was always prepared. She has excellent court decorum and made sure her voice was heard. We were confident that whatever decision she made was not taken lightly and had been prayed over. Our situation was extremely difficult and had lots of challenges. Sarina was there and helped guide us through the hardest season of our lives. We will always be grateful for the role Sarina played in our case. I would highly recommend Sarina.
