Probate Administration

Probate is the process where the court oversees the administration of a decedent's estate, ensuring that taxes and other debts and expenses of the decedent are paid. Probate also ensures the remaining estate is distributed in accordance with the decedent's will, or if the decedent died without a will (intestate), in accordance with Texas laws governing intestate succession.

Our probate lawyers have extensive experience in probate administration matters, including assisting clients with muniments of title, which involves a probate filing to transfer a real estate title to the beneficiaries of the will, without the necessity of a full probate proceeding. We also represent clients in complex probate administration matters, guardianship proceedings and in contested probate matters.
