During law school, Courtland clerked for the law firm of Shanklin & Cox and the Chenault Law Firm. Those experiences helped cement his belief that to successfully represent a client, an attorney must not only possess the requisite legal knowledge, but they must also fully understand the client’s goals and circumstances in order to provide the most effective representation.
As an Associate Attorney at the Chenault Law Firm, his practice focuses on all aspects of probate, trust, fiduciary and guardianship matters. This includes estate, trust, and guardianship administrations, as well as contested matters including will contests, trust disputes, guardianship contests and disputes, and fiduciary liability. He also assists clients in real estate, estate planning and civil litigation matters.
Courtland was admitted to the State Bar of Texas in 2016. He is a member of the Denton County Bar Association, the Real Estate, Probate, and Trust Section of the State Bar, and is currently serving as the Treasurer for the Denton County Young Lawyers Association.
