Houston Probate Attorneys
Probate is the process of finalizing an estate after someone dies. When an individual has left a will outlining how he or she wishes to leave his or her assets, it should be filed with the probate court where it will be processed through the legal system.
An experienced attorney can help you through the probate process quickly and efficiently. At the Houston law offices of De Lange Hudspeth, our probate lawyers can help you make sure your loved one’s estate is administered according to his or her wishes.

Understanding the Probate Process
One of the most common misconceptions about probate is that it is a difficult, lengthy, confusing, and expensive process that is best avoided. With a well-drafted will, probate can be accomplished with one short court hearing. An experienced probate lawyer can help you understand the process and advise you about the necessary steps.
Probate is a simple process. The administration process constitutes very little court time. Once the will is probated, the executor gathers all the assets of the deceased and then has them inventoried and distributed.
