After someone dies, going through Probate is the legal process by which the terms of the person’s Will are carried out or not having dispose of the person’s assets to the qualifying heirs. At our Goldstein & Scopellite, PC office located in Addison, Texas, and serving the Plano, Frisco, Dallas and Denton areas, we will read the Will, if any, explain the Probate options you have under Texas law and assist our clients who serve as executors until the decedent’s property is properly and appropriately distributed. Our experienced Probate lawyers also represent individuals who believe that a problem exists with the Will’s creation or administration and we will work to contest a Will. With over 85 years of combined experience, our lawyers know how to handle the most complex issues for clients throughout the DFW Metroplex area. Whether the estate includes extensive holdings or just a few items, we can help you navigate the Probate process in a way that eliminates unnecessary cost and stress.
State law allows for the independent administration of estates where essential duties can be completed without court supervision. In more complex cases, dependent administration might be necessary. Whatever process works best in your situation, we will develop a comprehensive Probate strategy and carry out each task, including:
Probate cannot be done pro se in Texas and failure to follow Probate procedures correctly can lead to costly litigation and threaten the value of the estate. Our firm ensures that an estate is administered as promptly and as smoothly as possible.
Probate disputes can make an already difficult situation worse. In these cases, an experienced attorney will advise you of your rights and press for an appropriate resolution in cases of alleged fraud, undue influence, and other conflicts involving the distribution of a decedent’s estate. Whether you are an estate executor or a potential beneficiary who believes that the testator’s true intentions are not being honored, or that a final Will was created by or through undue influence, our firm’s Probate lawyers will be there to offer vigorous legal advocacy.
