“We are honored to have represented many individuals, families and businesses over our decades of practice. Some of their humbling comments follow.”


Bill Dismuke and his staff guided me through a personally difficult time as I probated my parents’ estates. His knowledge and experience in handling complex estate administration, including management of tax and oil/gas matters was invaluable. I very much appreciated Bill’s ability to patiently explain and lead me through the probate process while insuring that I satisfied all duties and obligations required of me as executor. His office staff was extremely professional and responsive to all my needs. I highly recommend Dismuke and Waters.

It is a rare gift when personal and professional intersect and result in a deeply-rooted relationship. For more than three decades, my family and I have experienced this with Dismuke and Waters.

A high level of professionalism, expertise, preparation and commitment are evident in every aspect of their work. What really sets them apart, however, is integrity.

Bill Dismuke has walked with us through mergers, acquisitions, contracts, real estate transactions, family disputes, tragedies, deaths and estates. He played a significant role in building PESCOR Plastics into an industry leader from the mid-80s. He was strategic and tactical in finalizing a merger between PESCOR and a competitor in 2001, which ultimately resulted in an acquisition by Goldman Sachs in 2002.

Today, Bill is guiding my wife, Betty, and me as we consider and plan the best next steps for our family – our children, grandchildren and the generations that follow.

Thank you, Bill, and the entire DW team for your impact in my life and the lives of my family.

As our company continued to grow and our family’s assets became more complex our Financial Planners suggested we meet with William Dismuke of Dismuke & Waters. I cannot say enough good things about William and his team.

What started several years ago as estate planning became a relationship covering such diverse needs as generational security, tax positioning, family wills and all areas in between, up to including the recent sale of our family company. William has always treated us with a high level of attention and respect. During an arduous negotiation with the acquiring group, his focus and diligence assured us of receiving the best possible advice, leading to an extremely favorable result.

Since starting our company 24+ years ago we have been represented by a few legal agencies, none have come even close to the Dismuke group. They address our legal needs/issues with knowledge/professionalism that puts our minds at ease.

One of the most important relationships we have as a family is with the partners and staff of Dismuke and Waters. They provide us with critical legal advice and tax planning expertise to assist us in managing our diversified business interests. We find their counsel to be thoughtful, reasoned and well documented as they help us oversee our trust and estate matters as well as our various business strategies.
