Biloxi Probate Lawyer

Pascagoula and Gulfport Wills and Estates Attorney

When you work hard and do your best to provide for your family, it becomes essential to take legal steps to ensure that assets and property will be distributed the way you want when you pass away. When a family member dies, it can be equally important to have a solid Biloxi probate attorney at your side to guide you through a legal process that can be intimidating.

At Hornsby Watts, PLLC, you can work with a skilled, caring lawyer who has extensive experience in all aspects of Mississippi estate and probate law, including estate planning and the resolution of disputes when someone dies without a will or the handling of an estate comes into question. We offer complete, hands-on services in these areas, whether your needs are fairly straightforward or millions of dollars hang in the balance.

Drafting Wills, Trusts and Other Legally Sound Estate Planning Documents

Almost everyone — and literally everyone with children — needs a basic estate plan. Some people need only a few relatively straightforward documents such as a will, a power of attorney designating a trusted individual to make decisions, and a living will or "health care directive" to make your wishes about medical care clear should you be unable to make them for yourself.

We help people across the cultural spectrum of life in Mississippi safeguard their assets for their spouses and the generation that follows. Our estate law attorneys' experience extends to development of complex trusts for people with property in multiple states, tax concerns and other needs.

Handling Probate and Estate Litigation When Disputes Arise

Unfortunately, family members and other parties sometimes run into serious issues when "intestate succession" is required due to the absence of a valid will. This can also occur if someone feels there was undue influence or forgery of a will, or under a range of other circumstances. If you need to pursue a will contest, trust contest or defend your interests in any other estate dispute, our representation and services may be ideal for you.
