The Law Office of Antoinette Bone, PLLC

Antoinette Bone brings a vibrant energy to the needs of each of her estate planning clients. It is an energy that is difficult to find anywhere else. She has a “can-do” work ethic that has earned her kudos throughout her career as both an Air Force JAG officer as well as civilian attorney.

She has counseled hundreds of individuals on estate planning matters and drafted hundreds of wills and ancillary documents such as powers of attorney and medical directives. Her experience serving as counsel to senior military officials and civilian management has enabled her to develop organizational and strategic thinking skills that are readily applied to the goals of her estate planning clients. Her work as an Assistant DA and litigator at both the state and federal levels has engendered a work ethic that ensures every job will be done in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.

Finally, Ms. Bone’s keen understanding and wealth of experience in a broad spectrum of legal practice areas (including family, criminal, consumer, ethics, labor and employment law) allows her clients to develop their estate plans from a broader and more all-encompassing perspective than they might otherwise.

Ms. Bone is licensed to practice in both Texas and New York. She is a Certified Attorney Ad Litem and Certified Guardian Ad Litem, VA certified attorney, and is a member of the Tarrant County and Texas State Bar Associations as well as the Texas Bar College. A graduate of the University of California in Berkeley, CA, Ms. Bone received her JD from the Syracuse University College of Law.

She resides in Euless.
