Strong Guidance Through Probate
Probate can be difficult in multiple ways. The legal procedures are complex, and families often experience grief and uncertainty after losing a loved one. If you are an executor, administrator, heir or beneficiary, our probate attorneys can assist you with probate matters such as:
- Identifying and properly classifying assets
- Paying estate taxes and debts
- Distributing inheritance
- Understanding the rights of heirs and beneficiaries
- Understanding the legal obligations of the executor or administrator
- Resolving will contests and probate litigation
Our team at Wells Peyton Partain Baldo & Lighty, LLP, has skillfully helped our clients complete the probate and estate administration process for decades. We understand how Texas probate courts work, and we can guide you.
Dedicated Estate Litigation Advocacy
If litigation is a real possibility or already underway, we will propose ways you can resolve a dispute without breaking your budget or squandering large portions of the estate.
Dispute resolution through negotiations, mediation and pretrial agreements is nearly always preferable to taking a case before a judge. Trial costs may overwhelm any benefits to be brought through hard-hitting litigation. A reasonable solution will put conflicts to rest while preserving assets and keeping the focus on efficient estate administration.
We Are Known For Being Honest And Reliable
We will take your case seriously and provide quality administrative, offense or defense strategies to meet your needs. Should you have any questions along the way, we will ensure that you get the answers you need to make informed decisions. We will work personally with you to understand all the facts, including your priorities.
We have experience and knowledge of the local court systems, and we are ready to put these skills to work for you.
