Multi-state probate issues occur when, for example, property in an estate exists in more than one state and becomes subject to one, or more, laws in two, or more, states due to complex probate issues. A common scenario for the firm is an estate with assets in both California and Texas.

“As the two largest states in the Union by population, California and Texas present complicated issues when it comes to probate,” explained Elliott Burdette, Managing Partner of Probate Litigation at Burdette & Rice. “For this reason, we are very proud of the well-received presentation by attorneys Toraason and Caldwell on multistate probate issues.”

To visit the event landing page, go to https://goo.gl/U5HKzq. The goal of the program was to help attorneys better understand Texas and California multi-state probate, trust, and guardianship cases. Frequently encountered legal issues and factual circumstances involved as well as routine administrative and disputed matters were discussed. Participants were presented with law applying to these types of cases including relevant case law of Texas and California. The presentation was held at the San Diego County Bar Association Conference Center.

It should be noted that in addition to constant outreach such as this presentation on multi-state probate, Burdette and Rice maintains a robust website with basic information on probate, estate, and trust issues.

For example, a basic primer to probate litigation issues in Texas can be found at http://www.dallasprobateattorneys.com/probate/. Anyone who may be facing a complex probate issue, especially those with property spanning more than one state, is encouraged to reach out for a confidential consultation with an attorney at Burdette and Rice by visiting the website and clicking on the “consultation” button at the top right of each page. Probate issues are complex enough when only one state is involved; multistate probate requires even more expertise.

Those who would like to learn more about Sarah Toraason or Mark Caldwell should visit the Burdette and Rice website and click on the “team” icon. Individual attorney pages can thus be found for either attorney, summarizing their experience, writings, and other aspects of their legal careers. It should be noted, however, that there is simply no substitute for a face-to-face or at least telephone consultation with an attorney. No two probate cases are alike either in terms of the facts or the law. Finally, anyone interested in having one or both of these attorneys as speakers for their legal event are encouraged to reach out as well. Indeed, journalists and bloggers looking for commentary on probate, estate, and trust issues in Texas are also encouraged to contact these attorneys for commentary.
