Houston Probate Lawyer

Probate Attorney

As probate and estate administration lawyers, we work with our clients to insure the probate process runs smoothly. Our attorneys review the estate involved and advise you as to the most efficient and economic manner to transfer property to those entitled. If you are named as the executor in a will, our probate attorneys guide you through each step required.

There are situations, however, when someone dies without a will. If you are a close relative or friend in a situation where there is no will, our probate attorneys will advise regarding all options for administering and distributing the estate.
