Estate Litigation

Things don’t always go as planned. Despite a family member’s best intentions or planning, sometimes their will or other estate documents do not properly dispose of their estate. This can happen for any number of reasons—undue influence, a person’s weakened ability to reason, or because of the complex probate and community property laws in Texas. Our law firm has successfully prosecuted and defended will contests across Texas. A will contest does not have to be a fight that divides a family, though it may well be. We understand that the passing of a family member or friend is a tremendous burden. Our lawyers are compassionate and will help you understand your rights. The Fort Worth lawyers at Gardner & Smith would be happy to discuss your case with you.
