Experienced Texas trusts and estates attorney helps you plan for the future
Dedicated El Paso lawyer works to protect your legacy
Karin Carson Law possesses in-depth knowledge about all aspects of trusts and estate issues, including:
- Estate planning
- Estate taxes
- Executorship duties
- Living wills
- Living trusts
- Probate and will disputes
- Wills drafting and execution
I can advise you on the best approach to your estate planning. I thoroughly analyze your estate and strategize the best means of transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, establishing guardianship for your children, supporting personal philanthropic causes and protecting your loved ones. I can draft a will that reflects your desires and establish a living trust if it would be beneficial to your estate.
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
When disputes occur between beneficiaries, I represent your interests. As a certified mediator, I can facilitate negotiation between beneficiaries to preserve relationships and settle estates.
Intestacy (No Will)
If someone dies without a will, I can determine the appropriate probate process. It may be possible to handle the transfer of the assets with an affidavit of facts, a small estate affidavit or it may be necessary to file an application to determine heirs with the Probate Court.
