Probate follows what is typically a painful emotional loss. The knowledgeable, meticulous probate attorneys at the Law Offices of Donaho and Dockery have 54 years of combined experience in probate law and know how to ease the stress of probate by guiding executors and beneficiaries through the complex process.

The process of probate
Most executors have rarely if ever probated a will and know little about the process. The Law Offices of Donaho and Dockery can guide you through the complex probate process, including:

  • Filing the will with the Texas probate court
  • Developing the best strategy for fairly and expeditiously probating the estate
  • Finding and collecting assets
  • Closing and opening bank accounts
  • Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
  • Paying estate taxes
  • Valuing, managing, preserving and liquidating the estate
  • Locating beneficiaries
  • Hiring experts, when appropriate

Valuing and managing the estate
Attorneys at the firm assist executors with the arduous process of collecting, managing, valuing, protecting and liquidating the assets of the estate. They has a team of experts available to assist in every aspect of estate probate. When appropriate, the firm calls upon accountants, financial advisors, real estate agents, property managers and other professionals to assist with executor duties. They can access expert opinions about unique assets such as antiques, rare books, automobiles and other collectables for accurate valuation, management and possible sale.

Probate disputes
Even in apparently straightforward estate cases, there are sometimes disputes between beneficiaries. Their professional courtroom presence can calm the emotionally-charged process of probating a challenged will, or disputed executor or judicial decision. When it is in the best interests of their client to preserve cordial familial relationships, they are adept at mediating these disputes. When necessary, they assertively defend their client’s beneficiary rights within the Texas probate court.
