Austin Probate Lawyers

The probate of a will in Texas facilitates the transfer of assets to the beneficiaries named in the will. A probate attorney represents executors and heirs in probate court and assists them in the administration of the estate.

At Blazier, Christensen, Browder & Virr, P.C. , our attorneys pride themselves on a longstanding dedication to their fellow citizens of Austin and Central Texas. Our firm combines that commitment with a thorough knowledge of probate law and the Texas probate system.

HEIRSHIP

If a decedent did not leave a will, the decedent's heirs are determined by the probate court under the Texas law of descent and distribution. After determining the heirs, the probate court usually appoints a personal representative of the decedent to gather the assets, pay debts and distribute the remaining assets to the heirs.
