Estate planning

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.

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

Probate disputes

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.
