Rackley Law Firm in Helotes, Texas, provides peace of mind for personal representatives (executors of estates) and beneficiaries of estates. Probate law attorney J. Caleb Rackley and helpful staff of the firm are prepared to take care of all details of the probate on a flat-fee basis. Mr. Rackley will also advise you on related issues such as making claims on life insurance policies, filing a final income tax return for the deceased or selling real estate if necessary.

What About Potential Estate Litigation?
In the event of legal challenges such as disputes between beneficiaries or accusations from family members that you are not fulfilling your fiduciary duties faithfully, our goal will be to help you resolve such disputes in an expedited, practical manner. Will contests and other types of estate litigation rack up hourly attorneys’ fees and can quickly reduce the value of an estate. We do not favor the idea of costly estate litigation. We always try to help clients avoid disputes and when they arise, arrive at reasonable settlements or conclusions without delay or unnecessary expense.
“Very nice experience and professional. First time using Mr. Rackley, and everything went as planned.” — Marilyn Pearlman (actual client)
