Probate Litigation

Decades of Experience in Wichita Falls, Throughout Texas and in Oklahoma

Probate is the legal process by which a person’s debts are paid and assets are distributed upon her or his death. As straightforward as that sounds, family members often find themselves in disagreement over the interpretation, administration and management of estates and trusts.

In addition to disputes between family members and other beneficiaries, probate litigation frequently involves personal representatives of estates who are thought to be lying, cheating or stealing from the estate — behavior known in legal terms as breach of fiduciary duty.

As attorneys who welcome every opportunity to pursue justice for our clients, we can work with executors, trustees, beneficiaries and personal representatives toward the most positive possible outcome. Individuals, families and business owners in north Texas know they can trust us to “do the right thing” for their futures.
