San Antonio Probate Litigation Lawyer

Boerne Litigation Attorney

Bexar County Probate Litigation Attorney Serving San Antonio

After the loss of a family member, you want to take time to grieve properly and handle their estate by following their wishes. The last thing you want to face is a legal battle over probate matters. However, there are obstacles that can come up that may need to be handled through litigation. Someone may have established an improper trust, or you may suspect that they have been abusing trust assets. The executor of the will may have acted improperly during the probate process and failed to disclose crucial financial information. There may be a dispute between family members regarding a person's status as an heir to the deceased's estate. If you are dealing with these or any other issues that may lead to probate or trust litigation, it is essential you have professional, experienced representation.

Probate Litigation

We are committed to helping individuals and families find the best solutions when dealing with probate disputes that follow the passing of a family member. Sometimes, if the parties cannot come to a mutual agreement, the best solution for these disputes is litigation. Our lawyers will take the legal burden off your shoulders so you can focus on more important family matters. If you are facing any of the following situations or any other probate litigation matters, we will provide you with the representation you deserve:

  • Contested will due to suspected improper influence, duress, or diminished mental capacity.
  • Financial mismanagement, including improperly preparing financial documents or failure to file financial records correctly.
  • Financial abuse, including misuse of trust funds or improper financial transfers.
  • Failing to act in the best interests of beneficiaries, improper investments, self-dealing, or theft of assets, known as breach of fiduciary duty.

Whether contesting or defending a probate manner, our attorneys will represent your side and fight for the most beneficial outcome.

Fiduciary Litigation

When a trustee or other individual involved in administering a deceased's will or estate performs their duties, they must meet their fiduciary responsibilities. That means they are responsible for providing a transparent accounting of the estate's assets and providing the beneficiaries with all the information that is due to them. If the trustee, guardian, executor, or estate administrator does not fulfill their responsibilities or does not act in the beneficiaries' best interests, the beneficiaries can bring a lawsuit. If successful, the individual may be removed from their position or held accountable for their breach of fiduciary duty.

Will and Trust Contest Litigation

A will or a trust itself could be contested and subject to litigation if it was not valid under Texas law. Reasons why a will or trust would not be valid include that the deceased was not of sound mind or was under duress when they prepared the will or trust, or it was improperly executed or was superseded by another document. The court can throw out the entire will or trust, or just certain parts of it. Our law firm will represent clients who are contesting or defending parts or all of a will or trust.
