March 31, 2016 – Dallas, Texas. Burdette & Rice, one of the leading probate, trust, and estate dispute attorneys in Texas, is proud to announce that attorneys J. Brian Thomas & J. Ellen Bennett will address fellow attorneys nationwide on May 10th on the topic of the Art of Trust Administration. Persons interested in learning more about the topic or presentation are urged to visit the firm’s website to reach out for detailed instructions.
“Brian and Ellen bring two unique perspectives on trust administration to this presentation,” explained Elliott Burdette, Managing Director of Probate Litigation at Burdette and Rice. “Our firm is a leader in estate disputes and estate litigation under Texas law, and our attorneys have a tradition of supporting continuing education through these kind of informative talks.”
The presentation will explain issues regarding how trustees should make distributions to beneficiaries and how trustees should administer a trust when it is in the process of being terminated. The two attorney presenters will focus on, trust administration core concepts and will provide a roadmap to administering a trust. This presentation is particularly valuable as it is made by two of the firm’s top trust litigators, each of whom has the perspective of possible liability issues that may arise from mistakes in Trust Administration. Improper administration of a trust, for example, can result in liability for the trustee.

More Information on J. Brian Thomas
Brian has committed himself to a single area of practice since he received his law license. Even while excelling in one of the most rigorous trial advocacy programs in the country, Brian worked one-on-one with some of the state’s foremost authorities on trusts, estates and fiduciary law. Brian cut his legal teeth in both Houston and Dallas, representing individuals in probate and guardianship cases where the stakes are at their highest. He understands that many people experience probate, estate or guardianship matters only once or twice in their lives, making his role as counselor all the more important. Experience, confidence, and dogged determination are critical when a client wants their story presented to the Court. Brian believes that every case has the chance for resolution, but that clients should be ready and professionally equipped to fight for their own success.
