Texas Probate System

The Texas probate system is both complex and unique. It is best to consult with an experienced attorney who can effectively answer your questions and guide you through the legal process from negotiation to litigation.

Our Fort Worth probate litigation lawyers can listen to the facts of your situation and provide valuable insight into how you must proceed.

At Spencer, Johnson & Harvell, PLLC, we understand that losing a loved one can be a challenging emotional time. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for disputes to arise around estate administration, the validity of a will or the effectiveness of a trustee.

When disputes arise, it is crucial that you call upon a skilled Fort Worth wills and trusts contest attorney who can guide you toward a successful resolution.

Will And Trust Lawyer

Most commonly, disputes can be categorized in one of four areas:

Will Contests

Beneficiaries contest the validity of a will. Validity can be called into question based on the decedent’s lack of testamentary capacity, the presence of undue influence or forgery.

Trust Contests

Similar to a will contest, a trust contest involves disputes around the validity of the trust creation and the effectiveness of the trust administration. Validity can be disputed on the bases of several factors, including lack of mental capacity, undue influence or forgery.

Guardianship Contests

There are two types of guardianships in Texas guardianship of the person and guardianship of the estate. If loved ones believe that the guardian is not acting in the best interests of either the ward or the estate, disputes can arise.

Fiduciary Litigation

Our firm has been called upon to defend wills, executors, trusts, trustees and guardians in a wide range of litigation.
