Probate
The passing of a loved one is a traumatic event.  Emotionally you need the help of family and friends.  Legally you need the help of an attorney.  The Law Offices of Richard L. Welch is here to help you with all of your legal needs at this traumatic time of your life.  Richard has been practicing law in the probate courts of Travis, Williamson, Bastrop and Burnet Counties for nearly 35 years probating estates with and without wills.  After the death of your loved one, Richard will meet with you for no charge in order to determine how to proceed.  A probate proceeding may or may not be necessary.  If one is necessary, Richard will guide you through the process, preparing and filing all documents, as well as appearing with you at all court hearings.  Most estates with wills can be probated at a cost of less than $2,000.00, which includes filing fees.  The probate of an estate without a will is much more expensive.  However, Richard pledges to provide his legal services in this situation at a reasonable cost to the client.
