Trust But Verify
An elderly man died without a will. His widow established an estate in Grayson County and was appointed as administrator. His children from a prior marriage were concerned that their step-mother might not treat them fairly. The estate was fairly complex, as it consisted of both separate and community property, including a number of parcels of real property, accounts, and a homestead.
They hired attorney Michael Young to monitor the estate proceedings and to protect their interests. They ultimately obtained the assets they were entitled to under the law.
