When it’s time to prepare your estate, administer a trust, initiate probate or arrange a guardianship, you can rely on HKH for trusted and prudent legal advice and guidance.
Our attorneys provide legal services for trustees, individuals, families and executors of estates in the jurisdictions of Collin, Denton, Dallas, and Tarrant counties and towns throughout Dallas and Fort Worth. We help our clients meet their goals for mapping out asset protection, future distribution of assets, personal care and the well-being of loved ones.
Our estate planning attorneys believe that proper planning can greatly benefit your loved ones after your death and assist them through difficult times. However, if no plan is in place, you may expose your estate to needless estate taxes and cause the United States government to be your largest beneficiary. Even if you believe your estate will not be subject to estate taxes, having a simple estate plan will allow you to decide who will be the beneficiary of your estate, instead of Texas State law determining who will receive your assets.
The estate and probate litigation our attorneys handle for clients includes a broad range of disputes regarding breaches of fiduciary duty and bad faith matters, beneficiary rights, accounting’s, guardianship contests, appointments and removals, will contests, trustee removal actions, executor removal and appointment actions, and other trust and probate code issues.
Our attorneys represent clients in estate and probate litigation with a keen eye toward reaching an amicable solution. Conflicts among the family often magnify the emotions surrounding legal battles in general. Although litigation may be unavoidable, we are always sensitive to the dynamics involved in family relationships.
