Probate of wills is the legal process that recognizes a will and appoints a representative to handle the estate and distribute assets to the intended beneficiaries.

We help people discuss, devise, draft, review and execute wills that are binding and enforceable in the state of Texas. We encourage newcomers to the state to have a Texas lawyer examine their existing will. We also urge everyone, Texan or not, to have an existing will reviewed any time there is a change in family status, business ownership, or other major life circumstance.
