The Law Offices of Bruce Thrasher handles cases in the following areas of probate law:
Preparation of wills and related documents: During your free consultation, Mr. Thrasher will discuss the information and documents required to draft the will. After drafting the will, he will provide you with a final draft and any related documents you have opted to include, for your review. Once approved, you will schedule an appointment with Mr. Thrasher and two witnesses (which the firm will provide) for your final signing.
Estates without wills: If a loved one dies without a will, otherwise known as "dying intestate," the state of Texas determines who will receive his or her assets. Mr. Thrasher can help you with the following legal procedures related to estates without wills:
- Declaration of heirship: Mr. Thrasher represents heirs or any entities with a financial or property interest in an estate that does not have an existing will, or one that cannot be admitted to probate. He can petition the court to determine the extent of the heir or entity's interest in an estate.
- Intestate administration: An intestate estate can be managed by a court-appointed administrator, who collects the assets, pays any debts and distributes the assets to the heirs. If the heirs are able to agree, they usually may select the administrator. Mr. Thrasher provides representation to intestate estates, including heirs and administrators.
Trust administration and preparation: A trust is an estate planning tool that can be used in place of a will or as a supplement to a will. Mr. Thrasher provides experienced advice in the preparation, administration, and termination of trusts.
