Trust Law

Our firm provides representation of trustees, other fiduciaries, and beneficiaries in connection with all aspects of administering trusts. We analyze the use of trusts to minimize the impact of income, estate, and generation-skipping transfer taxes. We represent both beneficiaries and trustees in litigation involving trusts.

We ensure that beneficiaries receive the benefits they are entitled to, and in cases where we represent trustees, ensure that the trustee is afforded the protections granted by law and the governing trust instrument.

Trust law can be very complex, and we assist our clients in working through trust issues so that a trust is handled and administered in accordance with the law and its purposes. We have unique expertise in specialized areas of trust and estate litigation and have assisted clients as well as consulted with other firms regarding these matters. We have represented beneficiaries of trusts in litigation against trustees for breach of the trustee’s duties to the beneficiary. We have also defended trustees, both corporate and individual, in such litigation.

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.
