When a loved one passes away leaving a Last Will, we can assist you in carrying out their wishes and guiding you through the Texas probate process. Watson Wood Law primarily serves Tom Green County and surrounding areas in West Texas for probates.

What is Probate?

Probate is the process by which a court legally recognizes a person's death and authorizes the administration of their estate. In Texas, a person's estate is made up of their assets including real property (i.e. a home, mineral interests) and personal property (i.e. stocks, vehicles). Administration of the estate consists of management and distribution of the estate assets. The purpose of probate is to transfer the assets out of the name of the decedent and into the name of the beneficiaries or heirs.  


At Watson Wood Law, we work closely with clients to make the probate process simple during the difficult time of the loss of a loved one, and guide you through gathering the appropriate information, preparing for and handling any necessary court hearings, meeting applicable requirements under the Texas Estates Code, and winding-up the estate’s administration.
