Simplifying The Probate Process

Texas has a more simplified probate process than most states. This does not mean that probate court is simple, but, with skilled representation, an estate can move through probate more efficiently here than in many other states.

I am John T. Elliott, and with my skills as a certified estate planning and probate attorney, I understand how to capitalize on Texas’s friendly probate laws. At my firm, Elliott Estate Law, PLLC, I provide guidance and representation for matters such as:

  • Probating wills
  • Independent and dependent administrations when there is no will
  • Probate dispute litigation
  • Heirship determinations
  • Alternatives to probate
  • Transferring title to real property
  • Accountings
    • Estate accountings
    • Trust accountings
  • Trust administration

I have served clients throughout the greater Houston area who must go through the probate process for more than 15 years.

I Educate Clients So They Can Stay In Control

Probate court is still a courtroom, and the only person with control is the judge. However, when you have the laws explained to you and your options laid out, you realize the power that comes with understanding the law. This lets you make choices that can offer an immense benefit to your goals in probate.

I make it a priority to offer my understanding of the probate process to each of my clients. I work hard to fully explain each of your choices and what makes the most sense for you. Your probate case will be unique to your situation, and I will be there at every step, whenever you need me.

An Estate Plan Streamlines The Probate Process

Many people believe that their estates are too small to be worth an estate plan. This is a common misconception. Every estate, great or small, benefits from creating an estate plan. Having a thorough, legally sound estate plan allows for the efficient dispensation of your assets, preserving a significant share of your assets for your heirs.
