At the Black Law Firm, we focus all of our efforts on dealing with wills, trusts and guardianship issues. A significant portion of our practice involves litigating probate and fiduciary disputes. We also help people guide administering estates and trusts. Moreover, we create estate planning instruments for people of all walks of life. By concentrating all of our practice on these areas of law, we have an intuitive understanding of the issues in a given matter. Our practice areas include:

  • Probate litigation: Our law firm represents executors, administrators, trustees or agents under a power of attorney in all types of litigation. We prosecute and defend all types of will and trust contests, will construction and trust reformation matters. Whatever your dispute involves, we are prepared to take decisive action on your behalf.
  • Fiduciary litigation: Whether you are a fiduciary accused of breaching your duty, or if you want to hold a fiduciary accountable for mismanagement or misconduct, our Houston-based law firm provides exceptional representation. We take on all types of issues on behalf of beneficiaries and fiduciaries, including accusations of elder financial abuse.
  • Estate administration: Our Houston probate and estate administration attorney advises executors, administrators and other personal representatives. We also represent beneficiaries and heirs to ensure they are treated equitably in the probate process. Our practice also involves guiding clients through the necessary steps when someone dies without a will.
  • Estate planning: Whether your needs are complex or relatively simple, we will tailor an estate plan exactly to your specific needs.
  • Guardianships: We represent clients in all types of guardianship issues. For instance, we advise clients as to the necessity of seeking a guardianship. We also administer guardianships, and when necessary, litigate guardianship disputes.
  • Probate mediation: Ray J. Black Jr. is a probate mediator in addition to a lawyer, and can help parties engaged in disputes to forge mutually constructive outcomes.

In each of these areas, you can rely on our experience and skill to develop and implement customized solutions.
