Probate of a will in Texas facilitates the transfer of title of assets to beneficiaries. An attorney is needed to help families through the process and to assist in the administration of the estate.
At Blazier, Christensen, Bigelow & Virr, P.C., our attorneys pride themselves on a longstanding dedication to the fellow citizens of Austin and those throughout Central Texas. Our firm combines that commitment with a thorough knowledge of probate law and the Texas probate system.
If a decedent did not leave a will, the heirs must be determined under the Texas laws of descent and distribution. Generally a personal representative of the decedent can be appointed by the probate court who can gather the assets, pay debts and distribute the assets left over to the beneficiaries.
Contact our offices in Austin to discuss your probate matter in any of the following areas of the law:
- Uncontested probate of a written will
- Probate litigation, contested wills
- Trust litigation, breach of trustee fiduciary duty
