What is Probate?

Probate is a legal process involving the assets and liabilities left behind by a recently deceased person. Its goal is to ensure the decedent's debts are paid and assets are allocated to their appointed beneficiaries. Common probate-related tasks include:

  • Proving in court that a deceased person's will is valid
  • Identifying and taking inventory of the decedent's property
  • Having property appraised
  • Paying debts and taxes
  • Establishing an estate bank account
  • Distributing the remaining property as the will (or state law, in the absence of a will) directs

I’ve been advising clients in their probate cases since 1976. Get the experienced advice you need after the death of a loved one by contacting my office in Houston, Texas. I serve the surrounding areas of Fayetteville, Pearland, Sugar Land, and Katy.
