Guardianship Issues: an Important Topic under Texas Law

With a tradition as a leader in Texas as a law firm for trust, estate, and probate litigation, Burdette & Rice is known for its commitment to continuing education. An issue that is very important yet that can slip under the radar is guardianship. While will contests and high-profile litigation over trusts and estates garner attention and often the public imagination, guardianship issues are important at a foundational level. First and foremost, how guardianship works can have a very direct impact on individuals in an on-going way. Second, guardianship issues are increasingly important as society changes and evolves, whether this is the guardianship of a child or of an older person who suffers from a disease such as Alzheimer’s. Recent changes by the Texas legislature make the topic of guardianship, both at an administration and at a litigation level, incredibly important. Anyone who would like to know more should mark his or her calendars for Mark’s ‘must attend’ presentation this fall in Plano, Texas.
