Mr. Marchand concentrates his practice in the areas of estate planning and probate law. Mr. Marchand is Board Certified in Estate Planning and Probate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Specifically, his estate planning practice consists of the implementation of a series of documents to accomplish a client's objectives as to the disposition of his or her estate. Ideally, this planning attempts to maximize the credits and exemptions from federal estate and gift taxes provided under the Internal Revenue Code.

Another feature of Mr. Marchand's practice involves general business planning, which consists of counseling clients with respect to the establishment, reorganization, operation, and tax reporting requirements of his or her business and related transactions. A primary emphasis of Mr. Marchand's business planning practice is placed on the transfer of business interests to family members in the most tax efficient manner and providing the second (or third) generations with the best opportunity of continuing the family business.

Mr. Marchand's practice also consists of representing executors in probate administration and the settlement of estates, and the preparation of federal and state inheritance tax returns.

Mr. Marchand was admitted to practice in Texas in 1999.

Education
LLM in Taxation
Class of 2000

We are a global law school community of distinguished alumni residing throughout the United States and in more than 75 countries. Our faculty is well-recognized for its outstanding teaching and scholarly leadership in such areas as dispute resolution (including litigation), international and comparative law, intellectual property, corporate, commercial and tax law. We offer a rich curriculum of over 165 upper class courses in subjects such as oil and gas, health and environmental law. Over one-half of our upper class courses have fewer than 25 students; three-fourths have fewer than 50 students. The first year class is divided into three sections (two full-time and one part-time evening) of approximately 90 students each, with small legal writing sections of approximately 25 students each. We emphasize the vital skill of legal writing through our six-hour legal research, writing and advocacy course and an elective three-hour edited writing seminar. The law quadrangle provides an idyllic setting for learning. The Underwood Law Library houses the largest private law collection in the Southwest. The Godwin Gruber Lawyers Inn offers students an elegant backdrop for study breaks and meals. A secure wireless network is available in all law school buildings. Most importantly, our small size fosters a scholarly community that features interaction with faculty, attention to your personal needs, and lifelong friendships. We have an active student government, five respected law journals, six specialized legal clinics and two related projects, numerous moot court and mock trial competitions, and one of the finest Career Services Offices in the country. In addition, students participate in the thriving intellectual life of the school. We have been chosen as the national headquarters for the Appellate Judges Educational Institute. In 2006 the Institute brought over 225 appellate judges and attorneys from across the country to SMU, including Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the Chief Justices of Texas and Indiana, and the Chief Judge of the Sixth Circuit. Recently, the 35 students in our SMU Oxford program assisted with our Supreme Court Summit in which Justices O’Connor, Ginsburg, and Breyer participated, as did Justices from Europe's highest court, the European Court of Justice. In spring 2007, we were honored to host a group of distinguished Justices from the ECJ on campus. A thriving community of scholars call Dedman Law home. Our distinguished faculty, coupled with our intelligent and inquisitive student body personify Robert Dedman's words, "Leadership starts with learning."

For years, the Dallas Bar Association headquarters were housed in the offices of the then-current president. In 1937, headquarters were established in a small space under the stairs of the Old Red Courthouse. Ten years later, the DBA was the state’s first bar association to incorporate. Incorporators envisioned the Association someday being housed in its own building.
