Estate Planning & Probate Administration

Planning for the Future. Dealing with the Unexpected.

As difficult as it is to accept, one day you will no longer be here. That time may come after several years, or it could arrive sooner. Without proper planning, your loved ones can experience a huge burden as they try to decipher your financial affairs, track down and distribute assets, and appoint a guardian for your minor children. A time that is already stressful can be escalated and result in painful disputes.

Albright & Lumpkin can eliminate all that worry and uncertainty by helping you put together an estate plan that protects dependent family members and preserves as much of your wealth as possible for the next generation. We also offer probate administration services designed to expedite the process as much as possible, so that your beneficiaries receive their inheritances sooner.

Estate Planning

Our experienced estate planning attorneys can help you plan for the preservation and distribution of your assets as well as protect your minor children. One of the most basic steps is putting together a Will: without one, your estate will be divided according to the Texas laws of intestacy and your children could end up with a guardian who would never have been your first choice.

At Albright & Lumpkin, we can also:

  • Recommend the best asset protection and management tools for your circumstances
  • Explain and put together healthcare directives that clarify your wishes when you aren’t able to do so yourself
  • Educate you on powers of attorney and when they might be appropriate
  • Help you establish provisions to suit your circumstances, such as a trust for your minor children

Everyone’s needs and goals are different, which is why we never take a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Your estate plan will be as unique as you are and designed to make your wishes clear after you pass.

Probate Administration

Albright & Lumpkin work with executors and administrators to ensure that all legal requirements of the probate process are being followed and can even serve as executor for your Will so that your loved ones are spared the stress and hassle of the complicated duties related to probate administration.
