If you have been named executor, administrator or personal representative of the estate of a loved one, our Estate and Probate Section can help you complete all the requirements to successfully settle the estate, including:

  • The preparation of an inventory of the estate's assets
  • The payment of all final debts
  • Co-coordinating with your tax advisors to file all federal forms necessary to take care of any estate taxes
  • The distribution of the assets of the estate according to the terms of the will

If the deceased left a surviving spouse, our Estate and Probate Section also looks carefully at the estate to determine the impact of Texas community property laws.
