Experienced Texas Trust and Estates Attorney Helps Guide You Through the Process

Probate follows what is typically a painful emotional loss. The knowledgeable, meticulous probate attorney at The Law Offices of Craig Seldin PLLC has more than 15 years of experience in probate law and knows how to ease the stress of probate by guiding executors and beneficiaries.

The process of probate

Most executors have rarely if ever probated a will and know little about the process. Attorney Craig Seldin can guide you through the complex probate process, including:

  • Filing the will with the Texas probate court
  • Developing the best strategy for fairly and expeditiously probating the estate
  • Finding and collecting assets
  • Closing and opening bank accounts
  • Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
  • Paying estate taxes
  • Valuing, managing, preserving and liquidating the estate
  • Locating beneficiaries
  • Hiring experts, when appropriate

Valuing and managing the estate

We assist executors with the arduous process of collecting, managing, valuing, protecting and liquidating the assets of the estate. The Law Offices of Craig Seldin PLLC has a team of experts available to assist in every aspect of estate probate. When appropriate, the firm calls upon accountants, financial advisers, real estate agents, property managers and other professionals to assist with executor duties. We can access expert opinions about unique assets such as antiques, rare books, automobiles and other collectables for accurate valuation, management and possible sale.

Probate disputes

Even in apparently straightforward estate cases, there are sometimes disputes between beneficiaries. Our professional courtroom presence can calm the emotionally-charged process of probating a challenged will or disputed executor or judicial decision. When it is in the best interests of our client to preserve cordial familial relationships, we are adept at mediating these disputes. When necessary, we assertively defend our client’s beneficiary rights within the Texas probate court.
