Probate (Will)

The will is an instruction document left by your loved one to facilitate their wishes.


Probate (No Will)

Texas law provides a 'default estate plan' for those who die without a will and/or trust.


Estate Planning

Everyone, including those of modest assets, should protect their loved ones and assets by creating an affordable Will or more detailed estate plan.



If a child, loved one with special needs, or elderly parents are unable to make decisions, handle money or care for themselves, a guardianship may be needed.

Probate in Texas

Probate in Texas is more streamlined than other states but can still be overwhelming. Attorney Cahan helps clients determine (1) is probate is necessary, and if so (2) which probate jurisdiction to file, (3) which of the three forms of Texas probate to choose, and then follows through as his clients instruct. Understandably, many clients are emotionally overwhelmed and ask Richard to handle everything including filing the probate, administering the probate process, and make any necessary court appearances. Other clients retain Richard’s probate services on an “as needed basis” where they do some of the probate tasks and have Richard do the forms, form filing, answer legal questions as they come up, and make any court appearances on their behalf.

Metro Austin Reviews

I contacted him on problems with my apartment and he reached out to me in just a few hours. Not only that but he answered all my questions no matter how small. He also returned my emails on a holiday. How great is that! I strongly recommend him. He is polite, understanding and upfront about everything. I just can’t say enough good words about this man.
