Probate Administration

Dallas Probate Court Attorney

A well-constructed estate plan conserves assets and enables them to be passed to the next generation with minimal taxes. Probate, the process by which a deceased person's property is transferred, with court supervision, to a decedent’s heirs and beneficiaries, is the medium through which these plans are put into operation.

Bruce E. Turner is an experienced estate planning and probate lawyer whose goal in probate administration is efficient accounting, and prompt distribution of estate assets. At Bennett, Weston & LaJone, P.C., he represents fiduciaries and beneficiaries in Texas probate court and his services include:

  • Preparing an accurate accounting of estate assets and liabilities
  • Filing necessary pleadings to admit a decedent's will to probate
  • Preparing all documents and filings required under Texas laws and procedures
  • Working with Certified Public Accountants to prepare income tax returns and any required estate tax returns
  • Post-Mortem tax planning

Mr. Turner's experience enables him to counsel surviving spouses and children during this transition and help them make sound legal decisions regarding the disposition of any assets.

Overcoming Probate Problems

In Texas, the probate process can be easy — provided that the will is properly drawn and probate administration proceeds in an orderly and professional manner. However obstacles can arise along the way. In particular, the disposition or transfer of real estate can present problems that require legal action.

When a problem does arise, he will work to resolve it quickly and efficiently.
