What A Probate Lawyer Does

A Jim Wells County probate attorney offers many different services. For example, estate planning, setting up guardianships, conservatorships and trusts, transferring property and drawing up a Last Will and Testament.

A Jim Wells County Probate attorney can ensure that all filing of paperwork is completed, and the attorney can also inventory and appraise any estate assets. A petition will be filed with the court to open a probate estate, but proof is needed to validate the death of the deceased.
