Hondo probate litigation lawyer

Bexar County Estate Administration Attorney for Probate Litigation and Contested Estates

After a person dies, there are multiple legal issues that will need to be addressed as their loved ones attend to their final affairs. Some of these issues may be handled in probate court, while others may be addressed using different methods. A person's family members, other beneficiaries, and anyone else with an interest in these proceedings will need to make sure they are taking the right steps to address these matters correctly. To ensure that a deceased person's wishes are followed or to resolve any disputes that may arise regarding the distribution of assets, it is important to work with a lawyer who understands the laws that affect probate and estate administration matters.

At the law office of Geoff Mayfield, Attorney at Law, we work with clients to address a wide variety of probate issues and ensure that a person's final affairs are handled correctly. Geoff has more than 15 years of legal experience, and he has a strong understanding of the legal issues that need to be addressed in these situations. Whether you are the executor of a person's estate, a family member who wants to make sure your loved one's wishes are followed, or a party in a case involving a contested estate, we can provide you with legal representation and help you resolve these matters successfully.

Estate Administration and Contested Estates

Following a person's death, the person they have named as the executor of their estate will open a case in probate court. Geoff assists executors throughout the Texas probate process, ensuring that they follow all of their requirements as they take an inventory of the deceased person's estate, pay taxes and debts, notify all interested parties, and distribute the person's assets to their heirs. We also assist with other estate administration matters, including providing representation for trustees who need to ensure that the assets in a trust are properly distributed to beneficiaries.

We also provide representation in matters involving contested estates. If a person's heirs or other interested parties are unhappy with the terms of the person's last will and testament, they may challenge the will through probate litigation. These challenges will usually be based on claims that a will was invalid. Probate litigation may also be based on claims that an executor did not follow the terms of a will or failed to carry out their duties when handling a person's final affairs. Interested parties may also pursue litigation to address the administration of a trust, and these cases may address claims that a trustee has mismanaged a trust's assets or did not distribute assets correctly according to the terms of the trust.

During probate litigation, we provide representation for beneficiaries, helping them take action to ensure that their loved one's wishes are carried out correctly. We also provide representation for fiduciaries, including executors, personal representatives of estates in cases where a person died without a will, agents named in powers of attorney, and trustees.
