Recently, the Texas Legislature has changed the title of the “Probate Code” to the “Estates Code” which encompasses Probate, Estates, Guardianships, and the like. Further there is a separate Trust Code contained within the Property Code. At Drought, Drought & Bobbitt, we are accustomed to handling complex matters arising in these areas, and have successfully litigated these matters.

If you need help with estate planning, please contact our law office to speak with one of our probate or estate planning attorneys. Further, we have handled matters in probate courts for many years. The issues our clients face are often complicated and typically quite sensitive matters involving close family members or formerly trusted representatives. Below are just a few of the reported appellate court decisions involving our attorneys and demonstrate our work.
