Wills And Probate

Texas Probate Attorney

Estate planning is important for everyone, regardless of the size of their estate. If you pass away without a will, trust or other estate planning instrument in place, distribution of your assets will be left to the state courts of Texas. Your heirs may never know your final wishes.

Putting a Plan in Place for the Future

Many people think of estate planning as simply naming beneficiaries in a will or trust. Although making certain your loved ones are provided for after your death is important, certain estate planning documents can make your wishes known should you ever become incapacitated and unable to speak for yourself.

Our firm can assist you with drafting living wills, durable powers of attorney and other documents to ensure that your final wishes are carried out.
