Civil Litigation in North Texas
The Chenault Law Firm understands that civil litigation action is increasing as more people become aware of their rights under the law, and the remedies to which they are entitled for negligence or breach of contract.
While many civil lawsuits are settled far in advance of trial, you want to make sure you are getting a fair deal. Our civil trial attorneys have extensive experience in matters of civil litigation. We conduct a thorough investigation of the claim at the outset to give you the greatest leverage possible in moving forward with your claim.
There are often special rules when it comes to cases with multiple defendants, plaintiffs or expert witnesses (complex litigation), medical malpractice and arbitration/mediation.
This is why it’s imperative that you hire a civil litigation lawyer with experience and proven success. This could be your one shot at recovery of damages and remedies to which you are entitled.
Estate Administration In Denton & North Texas
When a loved one passes away, his or her estate often has to go through a court-managed process called probate or estate administration where the assets are managed and distributed. This process is not necessary if your loved one possesed a well-drafted and properly funded living trust. In this case, the successor trustee instead of the court will administrate and distribute the deceased’s assets.
In most other estate cases, however, probate is required and the length of time needed to complete the process depends on the size and complexity of the estate as well as the requirements and schedule of the local probate court. Contact our office to schedule a consultation and have all of your questions answered.
