Hi, I’m Robert Ray and this is my story. I am a Texas attorney. I am Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. I handle cases throughout Texas. My principle office is in Lantana, Texas in the DFW area.

I am a past chair of the Texas State Bar, Computer & Technology Section. I was appointed by the Chief Justice to serve one year as an ex-officio member on the Judicial Committee on Information Technology. I have published articles in the Texas Bar Journal and an ABA journal.

I handle litigation involving inheritance disputes. I don’t prepare wills. I don’t file wills for probate or distribute estates except when we are in litigation contesting a will or protecting a will from a contest. We handle a select few cases on a contingency.

I created www.TexasInheritance.Com and this blog to help people find answers to their inheritance questions that involve litigation.

This blog has information about inheritance laws, contesting a will, property disputes and problems with trustees or other fiduciaries.

Holding trustees and executors accountable

Trustees and executors are fiduciaries. Fiduciaries hold property that belongs to another. Some fiduciaries cause problems. They may refuse to turn over the property to the beneficiary. They may steal the property. They may just be incompetent and confused about their obligations. They treat the property as if it is their own. Clicking the Fiduciary Overview button below should be your starting place to learn about fiduciaries.
