Probate and Estate Administration

Our firm has significant experience in handling probate and estate administration matters. Probate is the legal process by which a person’s debts are paid and assets are distributed upon her or his death. Lawyers refer to the entity that owns the deceased’s assets until those assets are distributed as an “estate.” Estate administration includes the probate process as well as non-probate transfers of the deceased’s assets.

State laws and procedures vary greatly; so it is important to consult a firm with expertise in this area of the law to ensure that a deceased person’s assets are distributed correctly with the least expense and most tax savings.

We are proud to have attorneys practicing in this area like Artie G. Giotes and C. Scott Omo who are both Board Certified in Estate Planning and Probate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
