Tarrant County Probate Litigation Attorney Serving Texas

Dealing with the death of a loved one can be difficult in any situation. Family members may struggle with the emotional effects of their loss, and they can easily become overwhelmed as they sort out the person's final affairs. In some situations, these matters can become even more complex and difficult due to disagreements between family members, claims against an estate by creditors, or other legal disputes. When determining how to resolve these issues, family members need to understand their rights and options, and they can do so by working with an attorney throughout the probate litigation process.

Cain & Kiel Law provides legal help and representation to family members, executors, trustees, or other parties who are involved in disputes related to a person's death. We understand how difficult this time can be, and we will work with you to help you understand your rights and options under the law. We will also aggressively protect your interests in court, whether we are working to probate a will, settle a disagreement between family members, or defend against a creditor's claim.

Representation in Probate and Estate Disputes in Tarrant County

If you are dealing with probate or estate litigation in Tarrant County, our team of compassionate, experienced attorneys can help. We represent clients in a wide range of probate and estate disputes, including:

  • Will contests - If you believe that a will is not valid, you may have grounds to contest the will in court. Our attorneys can help you gather evidence and build a strong case to show that a will is invalid due to fraud, lack of testamentary capacity, undue influence, or other issues. We can also help executors determine how to respond to claims by beneficiaries or other parties that a will is invalid.
  • Trust disputes - Disagreements over the terms of a trust, how trust assets are being managed, or other issues related to the wishes of a deceased family member can be complex and emotionally charged. Our attorneys can help you understand your rights and options under the law, and we will work to protect your interests in court.
  • Breach of fiduciary duty - Executors, trustees, and other fiduciaries have a legal duty to manage estate assets and property in accordance with the terms of the will or trust, and they can be held liable for any losses that occur due to their negligence or misconduct. If you believe that a fiduciary has breached their duty, our attorneys can help you understand your options and take action to protect your interests.
  • Guardianship disputes - Matters related to the legal guardianship of minor children or disabled adults are handled in probate court, and litigation may be required if disputes about these issues arise. If you are concerned about the welfare of a minor child or vulnerable adult, our attorneys can help you petition the court for guardianship. We can also represent family members who are contesting a guardianship petition or who have concerns about the actions of a guardian.
  • Creditor claims - Creditors may attempt to collect on debts owed by a deceased person by filing claims against the estate. Our attorneys can help executors and trustees navigate the probate process, and we will aggressively defend against any unwarranted or excessive creditor claims.
