The complication and expense that can arise in the process of probating a Texas estate can be minimized with guidance from a probate attorney. I can assist you with issues related to probate and estate administration, as well as probate litigation if you believe that you have been treated unfairly in a will or that a trust has been administered improperly.

Real Estate Litigation

A real estate dispute – whether it relates to boundary issues or liens on a home or breach of a purchase of sale contract for a commercial property – inevitably involves large sums of money. If you have a serious real estate dispute, it is usually worth the time and cost to pursue recovery in court. I have many years of trial court experience. I can help you understand the issues and make a strong case for you in court.
