The Rest of Texas

Only 18 of All 254 Counties in Texas Have Statutory Probate Courts.

We at Spencer Law, P.C. are willing to travel to all of the counties in Texas to represent your interests and have traveled to many.

There are distinct jurisdictional nuances in some of the other counties that can offer you an advantage, if you hire an attorney familiar with probate law and who knows to invoke such advantages. In smaller counties, counties with no county court at law with probate jurisdiction, it is possible to request the appointment of a statutory probate judge, which is a retired statutory probate judge that accepts such appointments. When done, you get the advantage of having a judge that specialized in and heard nothing but probate, trust and guardianship and related cases.

Statutory Probate Judge

Judges in smaller counties do not hear as many and have less experience with these types of cases, so a major advantage is gained, particularly in complex cases, when you get a judge that has heard these types of cases before. Perhaps the greatest advantage is the ability to convert a small “home-town” atmosphere giving the other side an advantage, if they have hired a local attorney, to a “home-court” advantage for you because the appointed statutory probate judge will not have the small town bias, that is sometimes inherent due solely to familiarity, but sometimes it can be even stronger, and more than likely will have some familiarity with Spencer Law, P.C. This an example of why it is important to hire an experienced estate and trust lawyer to help you with your probate litigation matters.
