Our clients receive all the legal services necessary to resolve heirs’ property issues including title searches, preparing documents, scheduling land surveys, requesting hearings, and providing full representation in court.

Because family agreement is the key to resolving heirs’ property issues, we offer personalized “Family Presentations” to help families decide what they want to do with their land. By bringing all of the family members to the table at the same time to be heard and learn about their heirs’ property situation, family agreement can often be reached.
