Probate Law

The Texas probate system allows for several different types of administration of estates. Since going into private practice in 2002, John has represented individuals who are going through this difficult process. Each set of circumstances needs to be independently evaluated so that you can understand what your options are and how to accomplish these goals.

Areas of practice include:

  • Probate of Will as Muniment of Title
  • Application for Letters Testamentary
  • Application for Letters of Administration
  • Independent Administrations
  • Dependent Administrations
  • Heirship Determination
  • Affidavits of Heirship
  • Ladybird Deed / Transfer on Death Deed

Simple planning can eliminate unnecessary stress, confusion, expense and uncertainty for your family and loved ones.  A valid Last Will and Testament allows a person to provide an orderly and simple transfer of assets; including real property, mineral interests, vehicles and personal property.  Additionally, in order to avoid costly Guardianship proceedings, several documents should be considered in order to best express your wishes without court intervention.  As such, you may need to consider the following:

  • Wills
  • General Durable Power of Attorney
  • Medicial Power of Attorney
  • Medical Directives
