Coronavirus Caused Changes in Office Policies

Clearly these are anxious times. Peace of mind is key and we will do all we can to help you feel that peace of mind in some small way by ensuring you get your estate plan to where it needs to be. We are stepping-up our home visit option to include more situations and doing so at reduced fees, as well as offering telephone or video meetings for all those who request it. Hospital visits always receive scheduling priority. In addition to our normal, throughout-the-day cleaning of the client areas, we will increase cleaning of all areas of the office, especially door handles, pens, and chairs. We will also ensure that all employees use hand sanitizer before every meeting. We are no ordinary law office and will prove it during these unusual times.

Due to the county-wide Shelter in Place Order, we are temporarily changing our business hours.   The office will be open Monday – Friday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; however, in order to comply with the county’s directive of limiting the number of people in a public place, we are by appointment only.  We kindly ask that you do not come to the office unless you have called in advance and scheduled an appointment.  Despite these temporary changes, we are still doing our utmost to help our community have the legal documents they need to handle legal matters throughout this crisis, to include doing phone and video conferencing, as well as necessary home visits.  We appreciate your patience and understanding while we all attempt to navigate through this new and uncharted territory.

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 any 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 focused on this area of law and has a wealth of experience along with a 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.
