Everyone deserves the peace of mind in knowing your family will be taken care of in the event of an untimely death. It is difficult to think about the uncertainties in life, but without an estate plan, your loved ones could be at a loss during probate. 

At The Foray Firm, our probate lawyers help individuals and families understand their rights and options for estate planning and preparing for probate. Our team helps clients from all backgrounds, regardless of the size of the estate or the potential complexities therein.

The probate process is the process of distributing assets and resolving debts after your death. A probate lawyer is a licensed professional who assists with estate planning, or managing assets during probate. Once your estate enters probate, an attorney will do the following:

Inventory Assets

Inventory Debts

Distribute Assets

Resolve Debts

Communicate with Beneficiaries

Why Hire a Probate Lawyer

At The Foray Firm, we have witnessed just how complicated and tragic the probate process can be when there is no estate plan in place. That’s why we are dedicated to helping families understand their rights and options, and prepare for the future. We are particularly sensitive to the needs of families who are considered minorities, who are Spanish-speaking, and LGBTQIA families.

What is an Estate Plan?

An estate plan includes documents like a will, which details how you want your assets managed after your death. Without a will, the state may consider you as dying ‘intestate’. When someone dies without an estate plan, the State of Texas has the power to distribute assets at their discretion.
