The answer to so many issues dealing with inheritance and probate is “maybe.”

If you want to probate the will as a muniment of title, then you can do that yourself. On the other hand, if the will names you as the independent executor, and you want the court to appoint you as independent executor, then you must have a lawyer to probate that will. An independent executor represent the estate and a non-attorney cannot represent others in court. You have to be an attorney to represent others in court. “An executor of an estate serves in a representative capacity of the estate, thereby requiring an attorney to represent the interests of the third-party (the estate) at the outset.” 13-17-00555-CV.

Zoom type workshops?

In the age of Covid-19. we have been thinking of having monthly or bi-monthly, free, Zoom type workshops where participants discuss with us issues that are of interest to them. There would be no agenda, we would discuss areas that the participants wanted to discuss. Participants could attend by computer, tablet or smartphone.

This would be a public Zoom type meeting so nothing personal or confidential should be discussed. Just general questions. Personal or confidential questions should be asked by using the Contact Us tab above.

If you think we should start having these workshops, please leave your email so we can notify you?

We will notify you if we decide there is interest in the workshops. Thanks for letting us know.
