Our Probate Litigation Practice
We provide comprehensive counsel to individuals involved as plaintiffs or defendants in disputes in the probate courts. We will work with you at all stages of a lawsuit, helping you determine if litigation is necessary, and what your other options are. We will prepare and file all documents required by the courts, and will be your advocate in all hearings or proceedings, from depositions to settlement meetings to trial.
We handle a wide range of probate disputes, including:
- Will contests — Our attorneys litigate claims involving concerns about the validity of a will or codicil, including cases involving allegations of fraud, duress, undue influence or lack of mental capacity.
- Allegations of breach of fiduciary duty — We represent parties in probate litigation involving wrongful conduct by an executor, administrator or personal representative, including self-dealing, conflicts of interest, and mismanagement of assets or property.
- Trust controversies — We take cases involving allegations of misuse or abuse of trust authority, failure to comply with trust provisions, or other wrongful conduct.
We will also serve as a receiver if there is a business or property that is the subject of a probate dispute. As receiver, we will secure the assets of the company, and perform whatever management tasks are necessary to maximize the value of the property. Attorney Kevin Buchanan has an MBA, and offers years of experience providing receivership services to individuals and companies in Texas and across the United States.
