Probate Assistance

Houser Firm attorneys represent individuals and corporate executors in all stages of probate administration in Texas. Our expert staff will comfortably handle any kind and size of proceeding involving a will, including contested and uncontested matters.

Very few assets are actually exempt from the claims of creditors. The major categories of assets exempt in Texas include the homestead, retirement benefits, life insurance, and annuities.

Assets not protected include cash, stocks and bonds, bank accounts, certificates of deposit, second residences, ranches, real estate, oil and gas properties, and closely-held businesses.

Once a creditor has an actual claim against you, it may be too late to implement a plan that will safeguard your assets. For more information, please call one of our attorneys today.

Probate Practice Areas

  • Probating wills and administering estates of people who have died, including preparation of federal estate tax returns where needed
  • Representing executors and trustees in matters such as accountings, prudent management practices, and distribution determinations
  • Representing fiduciaries who want someone to help them understand their obligations and the probate or trust administration process
  • Representing beneficiaries who want someone to help them understand the probate or trust administration process
  • Representing beneficiaries who want to make sure the executor or trustee is fulfilling their fiduciary duties
  • Formulating administration plans that help individual executors and trustees efficiently manage an estate or trust

We understand the stress and intense emotions you feel when someone you care about passes away, especially if their estate was not managed well before death. We routinely handle probate matters throughout Texas, including Dallas, Tarrant, Denton, Collin, Rockwall, Hunt, Kaufman and Johnson Counties. Our goal is to make the estate or trust process as understandable, manageable, comfortable and efficient as possible.

While Texas probate law is generally efficient and relatively inexpensive, hiring an attorney is often necessary or required to help you understand the best methods to accomplish and complete the probate process.
