Contested Probate. Many times, sharing an inheritance can be just as bitter as a divorce. The decedent may not have left a will designating an executor to administer the estate. Even worse, the person designated to serve as the executor may be an extremely poor choice for such an important job. In this situation, you need a Dallas probate attorney that can assist you in contesting the appointment of an unqualified person to serve as the executor of the estate. The Duran Firm can also assists clients in holding a previously appointed executor to his or her fiduciary duties, and if necessary, can assist in having the executor removed by the Court.

Estate Planning. The Duran Firm can also assist you with the preparation of your Last Will and Testament as well as any ancillary estate planning documents such as a power of attorney or living will. Let us help you make a plan that both preserves your estate for the people you care about while minimizing the burden on your family.

Guardianship. The Duran Firm also has experience in guardianship administration and can help you to obtain a guardianship over your incapacitated adult loved one (due to dementia or intellectual disability). For parents of sons and daughters with special needs who are approaching adulthood, the Duran Firm offers Guardianships for a fixed-fee.
