A Firm Offering Experienced Representation In Estate And Probate Disputes

The death of a loved one often brings families together. Unfortunately, it can sometimes resurface old tensions or lead to disagreements about how the estate should be divided. If the decedent left unclear documentation or there are questions about how the estate plan was created, it may be necessary to resolve these issues with the help of an experienced attorney.

In Houston and surrounding areas of Texas, the easy choice for representation is Elliott Estate Law, PLLC. I am firm founder John Elliott, a lawyer who is board-certified in estate planning and probate law. I handle all aspects of estate law, including representing clients in litigated disputes. In more than 15 years in practice, I have helped many other clients resolve their complex disputes, and I will work just as hard for you.

Commonly Disputed Estate And Probate Issues

No two cases are the same, but many share similar elements. Some commonly disputed issues I can help you address include:

  • Will contests (allegations of undue influence, competing versions of the same will, etc.)
  • Breach of fiduciary duty by an estate executor
  • Errors and omissions in a will (such as a would-be heir who feels they were left out by mistake)
  • Seeking court clarification over unclear or disputed language in a will or other estate document
  • Allegations that someone with guardianship or power of attorney has abused their authority
  • Removing a trustee from a trust
  • Breach of fiduciary duty by a trustee

I understand that unless estate disputes are resolved as quickly and peacefully as possible, they can create long-lasting animosity and deplete the very estate assets in question. As your attorney, my goal is to help you find the most favorable resolution available while protecting your interests and honoring the wishes of the decedent.
