Houston & Fort Worth Probate Litigation Deposition Attorney

Serving You with Two Decades of Legal Experience in Probate Matters

Probate is a legal process in which an individual’s property, assets, and debts are handled appropriately after the person passes away. In some cases, this process leads to disputes and controversies among family members and other interested parties leading to lawsuits. This is what is referred to as probate litigation; the lawsuit by opposing parties will have to be resolved before a probate judge in court.

At Keith Morris & Stacy Kelly, Attorneys at Law, we have routinely represented clients in Houston, Fort Worth, and beyond in probate litigation cases. Our firm is uniquely poised to represent you in such matters due to the time and concentration we have put into this field of practice. We are well-versed in Texas probate law. One of our guiding principles is to protect those who cannot protect themselves – in this case, the deceased who has passed away and what he or she would have wanted done with the estate.

What Are Depositions Used During Probate Litigation?

In any lawsuit, all sides have a right to a formal investigation of the facts and circumstances surrounding the case. This investigation is called “discovery.” In discovery, all parties gain valuable information about the disputed matter from witnesses and other parties that can be used to strategize their case. Depositions, which are oral statements taken under oath by witnesses before the start of a trial, become important matters in this process.

Depositions bring to light what you as a witness know about the case and they preserve your testimony so that it can be used in court. Depositions are commonly conducted in law offices wherein you will be asked a series of questions by an attorney about the facts and events surrounding the issues at the heart of the lawsuit; your words will be recorded in entirety by a court reporter. You are allowed to have your own attorney present during a deposition who can make objections to certain questions if necessary. However, you are generally required to respond to all questions that are appropriate.

Depending on the case and your particular part in it, a deposition can take minutes, hours, or even days where you have been heavily involved in the disputed matter. They are considered to be very serious events and the information you give in a deposition is generally deemed to be very critical to the case. Because you are under oath, you must carefully answer the questions presented; any falsehoods made under oath can have serious civil or criminal consequences.
