Estate Litigation

Staubus|Randall has a team of estate litigation attorneys experienced in probate litigation who have handled a wide array of lawsuits involving estates, guardianships, and trusts. Our clients range from individual beneficiaries involved in family disputes over wills, guardianships and trusts to prominent attorneys, fiduciaries, and large corporate trustees involved in fiduciary litigation.
We have represented parties in lawsuits involving family limited partnerships, closely held corporations, and limited liability companies related to estates and trusts. We have defended estates against wrongful death claims. Members of our law firm have been appointed by the probate courts to secure estate assets and to pursue claims on behalf of estates.
We pursue and defend lawsuits involving estates, guardianships and trusts in probate courts, county courts, and district courts throughout the state of Texas. From modest estates to complex multi-million dollar contests, our estate litigation team brings this collective experience, collaboration and firepower to each lawsuit we handle.
Staubus|Randall's estate litigation team begins preparing for trial the day we are retained. We aggressively pursue immediate emergency relief on behalf of our clients when appropriate, including injunctive relief, temporary guardianships and administrations, the freezing of assets, forensic audits and court ordered mental status examinations.
In the pursuit of our clients' cases, we utilize recognized experts, including forensic psychiatrists, forensic accountants, hand-writing experts, and investigators.
The firm also utilizes trial sciences experts in appropriate cases to provide strategic support, including assistance with jury selection, case strategy, graphics, and trial assistance.
Thanks in large part to thorough preparation and aggressive representation, we are often able to achieve success for our clients through negotiation or mediation without the expense of going to trial.
