Contested Matters in Texas
Serving Clients & Their Families in Austin, TX and Throughout Travis County
The vast majority of probate cases and guardianship cases are uncontested. However, conflicts can and do arise, and when that happens it is important to have knowledgeable, competent, and aggressive representation. Our lawyers have represented clients in a variety of probate and guardianship disputes throughout Texas.
Contested matters include will contests, suits by or against executors or trustees for breach of fiduciary duty, suits to remove an executor or trustee, suits to interpret a will or trust, disputes over the need for guardianship of an incapacitated person, or who should serve as guardian and many other kinds of contests.
When executors, beneficiaries, and guardianship applicants become involved in a dispute over an estate or the course of a guardianship, finding the right legal representation can be difficult. Many estate planning attorneys do not become involved with contested matters and many civil litigators are unfamiliar with probate practice and procedures. Our attorneys specialize in this area of the law and are equipped to deal with most contested matters. If you are interested in learning more about contested matters, please contact our office for a consultation.
