Handling The Complexities Of Probate Administration

Probate is the process of dividing a person’s estate under the supervision of the appropriate court. The primary goal of probate is to execute prompt, efficient and smooth transfer of estate assets in accordance with the wishes of the deceased and applicable laws.

At the law firm of Palmer Lehman Sandberg, PLLC, we provide probate and estate administration services to diverse clients residing in Dallas County, Collin County and elsewhere in North Texas. We also serve many out-of-state heirs who have been appointed as representatives of Texas estates. Our experienced Texas probate lawyers can provide either basic assistance or full-service handling of estates, including independent administrations and small estate affidavits.

Experienced Legal Counsel Can Ease The Stress And Burdens Of The Probate Process

Probate in Texas is often a fairly simple legal process when you work with an experienced probate attorney — but it is a completely unfamiliar process that can be intimidating for any nonlawyer. For basic insights into steps to take and your obligations, see our page on What To Do When Death Occurs.

Because probate is an emotional process for people who are grieving, we strive to simplfy and ease the process. When potential disputes and other challenges arise, we can handle them swiftly, keeping your interests top of mind. We will guide you through all the duties and obstacles, including:

  • Opening the estate and proving the will
  • Inventory and valuation of assets
  • Paying creditors of the estate
  • Filing tax returns
  • Distributing assets to heirs
  • Reporting and accounting
  • Ongoing trust administration

If you are not a Texas resident but were named as the executor or personal representative, we can take on most of the work. You can still be the primary point person and decision-maker from afar, while we handle the details so that you do not have to make numerous trips to Dallas. Our services also include administration of living trusts and bypass trusts.
