Have you lost a loved one and now need to go through the probate process?

Entering probate without proper guidance can be troublesome. You want to relieve yourself of stress and ensure things go as smoothly and as swiftly as possible while you are going through this difficult time.

At McDonnel Coates LLP, our attorneys are experienced and knowledgeable to ensure your loved one’s estate is treated fairly. If a last will and testament has been drafted, the probate process will include admitting the will to probate and distributing assets according to the will. If there is no will, the deceased person’s heirs will inherit according to Texas intestacy laws. An executor or administrator will be appointed, either according to the will or Texas law if no will exist, who must carry out the probate process in order to help ensure the estate is distributed appropriately.

At our firm, we pride ourselves in giving clients personal attention so that we may take them through the probate process as efficiently as possible. If you’ve been named as an executor in a will or there is no will, contact our DFW Metroplex attorneys today. We have years of combined experience we can use to support and guide you.
