Estate planning

I can advise you on the best approach to your estate planning.

I can draft a will that reflects your desires and establish living trusts if beneficial to your estate.

Probate

I apply my extensive knowledge about Texas probate court to guide you through the complex process of probating a will. I assist executors in all steps of the process, including:

  • Creating a plan of action to probate the estate fairly and expeditiously
  • Filing the will with the Texas probate court
  • Closing and opening bank accounts
  • Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
  • Paying taxes and other debts
  • Locating beneficiaries
  • Hiring professional expert when necessary

Probate disputes

When disputes occur between beneficiaries, I successfully represent your interests. I have the extensive knowledge to challenge invalid wills or to defend valid wills against the improper assertions of dissatisfied beneficiaries. A skillful mediator and litigator, I can negotiate between beneficiaries to preserve relationships or fastidiously pursue your rights in court when necessary.
