Founding attorney John W. Urquhart represents people in probate, estate planning, wills, estate litigation, guardianship, guardianship litigation, wrongful death, personal injury, terrorism litigation, and general civil litigation. John's combat experience as an infantry Marine provided a powerful foundation to launch a career as a probate lawyer and trial lawyer in our adversarial system of justice.
The Urquhart Law Firm believes in expeditiously and affordably achieving their clients' goals whether its a simple probate, basic will, estate planning, truck accident, or a complex international lawsuit.
Unfortunately, disputes often occur when the time comes to distribute a deceased loved one's estate. Many probate/estate attorneys are not as experienced in litigation and their clients and the estate often pay the price. Proper planning and the right probate lawyer with litigation experience can mitigate risks to the estate's assets and/or resolve disputes as expeditiously as possible if they arise. The Urquhart Law Firm's clients have the extra layer of security, without the extra cost, knowing their lawyers are vigilant in preventing and resolving disputes as expedetiously as possible, should they unfortunately arise.
As an example, a bad heir hired a very large probate firm in Houston, tricked the probate judge, and then stole approximately $140,000 from his late mother's estate leaving his siblings nothing that their late mother wanted them to have. The other heirs then hired The Urquhart Law Firm who obtained a judgment against that bad heir for approximately $533,000.
Founding attorney John W. Urquhart was the last attorney to train under the legendary Richard "Racehorse" Haynes where he learned invaluable pre-trial and trial skills. John then founded The Urquhart Law Firm, which has been a powerful force for individuals to aggressively and affordably enforce their rights, protect estate assets, and fulfill their deceased loved one's last wishes.

- Q. My fiancee has been on a probation hold for almost 6 weeks now.how long can hold her without a charge being filled
- A: This is a question from criminal law, not probate. However, no they can't just hold somebody without a hearing after a certain amount of time has lapsed. It's not that simple however. When there is a probation violation, then the defendant can be held until a hearing on the bond but the DA may ask the judge to deny her a bond. If she disputes the test is dirty then her attorney can request a sample and conduct an indpendent analysis. In short, she needs a criminal defense attorney to handle these matters or she will be caught up in the system. She has rights but she needs a criminal defense attorney to start making moves on her behalf. If you need a criminal defense attorney then give me a shout at 713-444-8506.
