Experienced Probate And Estate Administration Counsel

When a loved one does pass away, probating a will in the court can be relatively straightforward or complex, depending on the size of the estate, the types of assets and debts involved, certain beneficiary issues, whether a sound estate plan was in place and other issues.

In some cases, Texas probate law allows for an independent proceeding with very little court involvement. Or a dependent proceeding may be required, where the court will oversee each step of the process.

If you have been designated as an executor or personal representative for a Texas estate, it would be extremely helpful to have the advice of an experienced probate and estate lawyer. Mr. Werner will advise you on the law and help you meet your legal obligations as you settle and distribute the estate.
