Houston Estate Litigation Lawyer

Located “deep in the heart of Texas,” the city of Houston has developed from a sleepy backwater town into a bustling high-tech and energy industry metropolis that is rivaled by only a few of the world’s cities. Serving as the headquarters for NASA’s human spaceflight activities, the city could rightfully be referred to as “America’s gateway to the cosmos.”

The Port of Houston (the sixth-largest in the world) and the George Bush Intercontinental Airport (a top-ten North American airport) render the city a global trade and transport hub. Despite this cosmopolitan sophistication, however, locals and visitors are typically unsurprised to hear that Houston is frequently ranked among the nation’s friendliest cities.

With over 600 square miles to enjoy, Houston can boast more total real estate than any other major city in the United States. Its vibrant municipal economy exceeds the total size of the economies of 85 percent of the world’s entire nations (shockingly!). In other words, there is a lot of wealth in Houston.

Estate Litigation in Houston, TX

Over 15,000 Houstonians die every year, leaving survivors in emotional – and sometimes financial – distress. Although grieving the death of a loved one is no time to be fighting it out in court, the unfortunate reality is that conflict is sometimes unavoidable when the deceased leaves significant property behind.

That is the moment when our estate attorneys in Houston spring into action to protect the interests of our clients and to ensure that they are treated fairly by Houston courts. The estate litigation lawyers at Romano & Sumner are aggressive, fearless, and absolutely relentless in our pursuit of justice for our clients in greater Houston and Harris County, whether inside or outside the Loop.

The death of a loved one is an emotionally vulnerable time for anyone. Unfortunately, it can also be the time when you are most vulnerable to deceit, fraud, and overreach by relatives, estate executors, and creditors who are not above exploiting the death of a human being (and the resulting grief of the survivors) for financial gain.

Protecting people just like you is why we are in business – it is what we do, and we are proud of our role. Our Houston estate litigation attorneys will not be intimidated by greed, incompetence, or bullying. Instead, we will stand up in court, as we have many times before, to fight for truth and justice against manipulative relatives, bullying estate creditors, and dishonest administrators alike. We do this to ensure that you receive absolutely everything that you are entitled to.

Our track record speaks for itself – we have guided many a client through the difficult times following the death of a loved one, and we can do the same for you.
