Avoid the costs, delays, and hassles of probate with prior planning

Don’t put your family through the bureaucratic and anachronistic nightmare of probate. Even the simplest of probates in Texas can take way too long, cost way too much, lack privacy (everything is public record), allow for disruption by mischievous family members, and simply be a hassle for your loved ones who have to take time during the grieving process to meet with lawyers and go to court hearings. We will work in good times to minimize or totally avoid these problems during those stressful times of a loss of a spouse, parent, or other family member or friend. Come in and learn about the various techniques we use.

Home and hospital visits available when needed.

But we are here to help you through stressful times of probate when you can't avoid it

We are happy to assist you through the probate process and to find the quickest, easiest, and cheapest form of probate for your situation. Please note that due to our small office staffing, we are unable to take on contested / litigated probates.


Planning for, or dealing with, incapacity and death requires a special kind of law firm.

The people there should not only be highly skilled, but also be calm, compassionate, and friendly.  We have a very limited practice area so you can feel comfortable that your case is being handled  by a team that is very focused on this area of law and has a wealth of experience and great community reputation.

For over 35 years, Attorney Gene Silverblatt has been serving the Fort Hood, Killeen, Harker Heights,  Copperas Cove and Salado communities in the areas of estate planning, probate and trust administration. This includes matters related to complex or highly customized wills and trusts, medical and general powers of attorney, and guardianships for disabled adults, as well as serving as professional trustee or executor of your estate should you so desire. 

Our Mission

We are dedicated to providing high quality and prompt legal services with compassion and care, combined with state of the art resources, and all at affordable prices. We are also dedicated to the idea that we must take the time to explain the legal process and concepts to you in a way that makes you comfortable with the process. ​

We offer a 30 minute no-obligation legal analysis of your case. This includes fact gathering, analysis, and strategy recommendations. You can even take that analysis to another attorney!

Price - We are happy to give various price options after we complete the no-obligation legal analysis. While we are not always the cheapest in town, we know we bring 35 years of experience and expertise to the process and that sets us apart from those cheap guys!
