The Help You Need
From our Lewisville office, we represent estate administration clients in the DFW Metroplex and throughout Denton County in matters that include:
- Creditor issues: Many estates are burdened by heavy debt. The first priority in executing an estate is to close the debts with the creditors before the beneficiaries can receive their inheritance.
- Distributing property: The probate code is very specific about how the distribution of wealth is to be carried out.
- Will contests and other disputes: In many cases, disgruntled beneficiaries or potential beneficiaries will contest the validity of the will or the competency of the executor. They might say that the will was invalid due to undue influence or lack of capacity, or they will say that you, the executor, did not comply with your fiduciary duties or carry out your tasks in a timely fashion. We can represent you in this litigation.
Our clients appreciate our experience and the level-headed advice that we give them throughout the estate administration process. We can help you avoid liability and comply with all of the relevant laws that govern your work as an estate executor.
