Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
I prefer fixed fee agreements whenever possible. Some contested probate matters require hourly billing. I am also a mediator, and some mediations can go longer than scheduled, in which case I do bill each party hourly.

- Q. Can the executor of a will change the provisions without all the beneficiary's consent?
- A: Generally speaking, no. Texas law allows for the beneficiaries of a will to amend the terms by family settlement agreement, which would require every beneficiary to consent.
- Q. My grandparents are both deceased. They owned a home. They had 5 children. All but 2 are deceased. The 3 who are decease
- A: Yes.
- Q. What can I do to stop my siblings from stealing everything off my mother's the legal way?
- A: You should report elder financial exploitation to Adult Protective Services, a part of the Texas Department of Family Protective Services. You can file a Suggestion of Need of Guardian in the county where you live. If you are in Bexar County you should contact the Probate Court. In Medina and Atascosa Counties you'll probably need to contact the County Courts or County Courts at Law. Regardless of which county you are in, find an attorney nearby who has handled contested guardianship matters.
