Probate Avoidance, Probate and Guardianships
Every individual or couple’s situation is different, but prior planning can help establish framework to both facilitate the care of persons who might become seriously ill or incompetent during their lifetime and provide for their financial administration, easing the burden of family and/or caretakers. Effective planning can minimize cost of, and simplify the distribution of, assets on death as well as minimize stress among survivors. I consult with clients to explain the options available to them and how these options might fit into their particular circumstances.
I also assist clients in probating decedent’s estates and obtaining guardianships and conservatorships where necessary.
I have represented all of the elected public administrators in Dallas County since 1988.
