Keith Morris

Firm Overview

Our firm is a Texas-wide probate administration and litigation firm. We offer aggressive, responsive, and quality legal representation in the areas of probate administration, probate/fiduciary litigation, estate planning, wills, and trusts. We will work for you both in and out of the courtroom. Our willingness to fight for you from beginning to end and our track record of successful results sets our firm apart from other Texas probate lawyers. Some lawyers claim to know how to try cases, they take your case and then talk you into settling for less than what your case is worth simply because they are unwilling to try cases. We do not fear the courtroom, we embrace it and will take your case as far as it needs to go in order to achieve your objectives.

Probate Help
Have you lost a loved one and need to settle their estate? Does your relative have real or personal property that you need to have transferred to you? Has someone in your family passed away and you need someone to help make sure that the estate is administered correctly? Are you concerned that someone may be taking advantage of your loved one's death? Do you want to make sure the wishes of the deceased are honored?

Is your firm willing to help a client with one discrete part of a case, without taking on the whole case?

Yes, we are frequently hired to manage or assist on a part, but not all, of a case and our firm assists our clients when and how we are needed.

What are your policies about dividing work within the firm to make the process most cost-effective for the client?

Every case is assigned to a partner and to the extent that an associate or paralegal can perform the tasks, we make sure every case is staffed in the most cost effective way for the client.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

As often as the situation and jurisdiction require. We are trial lawyers, but trial is not always the most cost effective means of resolving a dispute for a client. When mediation or arbitration is appropriate, we take advantage of the opportunity to resolve a case in that forum.

Does your firm provide pro bono legal services or otherwise participate in your community?

Yes, we do and are happy to take cases pro bono.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Challenges do not frighten us - we thrive on them. Our firm is routinely hired or referred cases that can be described as difficult and embrace the reputation as problem solvers. We are problem solvers by nature and are driven by relationships and results. Our attorneys are both advocates and counselors for our clients. Not only will we stand up for you, we will stand with you through the most difficult of circumstances, and will fully explain and decode the legal system so that you are fully informed of your options. Ours is a philosophy of mutual respect, openness, and excellence in legal representation.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

A client should educate themselves on a lawyer and let the lawyer educate them on the legal issues.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

We will review and comment on any documents that a current or prospective client engages us to review.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

In some circumstances, and we are also willing to take cases pro bono if the limitation is financial.
