Probate Law

Probate can be a complex and intricate legal process. At FGHW, we have an in-depth knowledge of the state laws and local rules governing probate proceedings in Texas. Our lawyers offer compassionate support and guidance throughout the probate process. We have the experience and expertise to navigate through the legal requirements, paperwork, and court proceedings efficiently. We work diligently to minimize delays and ensure the timely distribution of assets to beneficiaries. Our lawyers will assist you in filing the necessary documents, gathering assets, paying debts and taxes, resolving claims against the estate, and distributing assets to beneficiaries.

In cases where disputes arise during the probate process, our lawyers are skilled in resolving estate litigation matters. Whether it involves contested wills, claims against the estate, or disputes among beneficiaries, we will advocate for your interests and work towards a fair resolution. The probate team at FGHW is also well-versed and competent in handling trust administrations, contested and uncontested guardianship matters, and fiduciary litigation. 

It’s hard to sum up into just a few words how much Jessica Dunne helped me. She was the perfect fit for what I needed as an adopted child who was being excluded from my biological dad’s estate during probate. I needed immediate help due to legal deadlines and didn’t know where to turn. I was so relieved to find an attorney with expert knowledge and experience in both adoption law and probate law who was able to help me immediately. After our first conversation, I was confident in her abilities. Jessica’s knowledge of the law was exemplary. Her compassion as a person was spot on. She was transparent about her fees as well as the cost/benefit of legal decisions along the way. She had the right legal instincts and strategies in moving forward to resolve the case and dealing with opposing counsel as well. She was professional, easy to reach, and I always felt she was working for my best interests. Jessica was honest with me and told me the truth, even when it wasn’t what I wanted to hear. It’s easy for emotions to run high in these cases but she helped to minimize that, focusing instead on what made the most sense and would lead to a quick and fair resolution. When I felt lost and alone and had nowhere to turn, God put Jessica in my path and it was a true blessing in my life. I wholeheartedly recommend Jessica Dunne to anyone needing counsel.
