  • Termination of heirship
  • Will contests and trust litigation

From Simple To Complex

Every situation is different. Whether you discovered the title to your loved one's estate has been incorrect for decades, or you simply need someone to help you understand your role as executor of the will, we can help. Our lawyers will dedicate their time to understanding each unique detail of the estate so that we can determine the most effective and affordable way to meet your needs.

Real Estate And Probate: We Do Both And We Do Them Well

Our Cleburne firm limits the practice areas we focus on, and our inclusion of both probate and real estate matters is intentional. The two practice areas are very closely related. It is usually after a loved one has died that the family finds problems with the title to the home or land.

We know that when clients are going through challenging probate matters, they often involve real estate issues. Because we take care of both real estate and probate matters, our clients benefit from that experience and knowledge.

We Are Here To Help

We find that in most situations, it is in our clients' best interest to avoid litigation. It can be expensive and time-consuming, coupled with additional stress during an already tense time. While this is the preferred method, we are always ready and willing to represent our clients in court when necessary.

Whether you need to probate a will or a clear title to land, our attorneys can help. It's our privilege to help you during this time. Please call us at 817-506-3120 to arrange a time to talk about your probate and estate administration issue. You can also contact us via email.
