As Texas Probate and Estate Dispute Lawyers, We Represent Clients in Fiduciary and Estate Management Claims

In Texas, personal representatives of an estate have fiduciary obligations to act in good faith and in a prudent manner in the course of administering an estate.  This means that they should avoid conflict of interest positions, they should not favor some beneficiaries over others who are similarly situated, and they should take prudent actions to safeguard and administer the estate assets for the benefit of the beneficiaries.
