One phone call with Mike and it is easy to see why I would recommend Mike as an attorney to handle an individual's matters. Mike is approachable and friendly, and he is an extremely capable attorney. He is also a seasoned attorney with vast knowledge in his chosen areas of law. Ultimately, Mike is a friendly, professional, zealous, and ethical attorney, who happens to be an even better person.

WILL and Transfer on death
I was in search for a probate attorney in Austin. Through the reference of my Accountant I contacted two attorneys. I was not satisfied. I searched on the web and found Mike Masse Law Firm [MML]. Going through their website I found MML is well organized and up-to-date in IT technology but I wanted to check on their capability and efficiency as a Law Firm. I spoke to Mike and found they are very strong in their profession and transparent in their reasonable fee structure. Mike explained about the advantage of 'Transfer on Death' document that does not require one to go to the court that would have otherwise required court appearance even in the presence of a WILL. I settle on three documents, namely, WILL by two of us, husband and wife, Medical Power of attorney and Transfer on Death. Mike gave us opportunities to review the draft of the documents and give them feedback, have a review meeting on Zoom and explain to my daughter and wife through a separate Zoom meeting. Finally Mike prepared the final version for signature. He ran through to explain one more time what is in the documents and drawn sketch to clarify the chain of transfers based on contingency. Many legal terms were explained distinctly. At the end, I was not just happy but delighted on the outcome. Without any trace of hesitation, I will recommend to anyone to go to MML on probate needs. Quality, price, satisfaction and courtesy are beyond expectation.

Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered
Q. My daughter was left something in her grandfather's will. The will specified that recipients must be 25 years of age.
A: A will that creates a trust post death is said to create a testamentary trust. A testamentary trust is irrevocable and cannot be changed. The terms of that trust will dictate how distributions can be made. Often the trust will allow the trustee to make distributions based on an annual percentage, or annual net income of the trust, or for health, support, maintenance and education.
Q. What can be done if executor refuses to probate will in Texas?
A: Sadly, some heir become attached to a home or feel that their entitled to live there. You need to get the law involved to change that situation. Hire a probate attorney to help get someone appointed to represent the estate and then the problem can be resolved. It's always tough dealing with people who are stubborn and feel entitled. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
Q. Can I become executor of estate sell it and then give them their share later? Or what should I do next to take of this?
A: Without a Will, you'll need to do an administration of the estate. The court will appoint an administrator, and then the administrator will have the power to sell the property and distribute the assets. Many people in Texas think that because they're the rightful heir or next of kin, that they can just sign a piece of paper. However, reality is that the courts need to get involved before actions can be taken on an estate.
