We Handle Cases All Across Texas
Our principle office is located in Lantana, Texas in the DFW area. We handle cases anywhere in Texas from South Texas to deep East Texas to Northwest Texas near the Oklahoma border and in between.
All cases in Texas are filed by the efile system, electronically. In the old days, an attorney would have to hand deliver a filing to the clerk or send it by mail, FedEx, or, UPS. With the advent of efiling, everything is filed electronically and instantaneously.
Hearings used to be conducted in the county where the suit was filed. In my career, I have had to travel 250 miles for a 20 minute hearing. Not any more. Because of the Covid-19 problems, more and more judges are using Zoom or something similar to conduct hearings. Even mediations are being conducted remotely.
Of course, trials will still be conducted in the county where the probate is filed but everything else is done through the efile system.
