Probate Case Results

Applicant (client) initiated a lawsuit on behalf of his deceased spouse against Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder alleging that their products caused the plaintiff to suffer cancer which ultimately resulted in her death. Court paperwork showing client as the personal administrator, executor, or legal representative of the estate was required. Failure to have such documentation in a timely manner would ultimately result in the claim against Johnson & Johnson being dismissed. The attorneys at Gonzalez Law Group were able to get the Probate Court to issue letters of temporary administration in a timely manner preventing client’s lawsuit from being dismissed and allowing the client to have the standing to bring suit against Johnson & Johnson.
- Independent Administration and Heirship proceeding
The decedent was murdered by her husband without leaving a will. Per the intestacy rules, her husband was considered an heir of her intestate estate.

Our attorneys gave him the appropriate legal counsel prior to his court date, and our client was able to avoid incarceration and was given a payment plan that will allow him to catch up with his arrearages over time. He is extremely grateful that he will now maintain his liberty and will be able to witness the birth of his child.

Our firm was retained to have the Harris County suit dismissed so that our client could file in her home state, in order to save her money, time, and to avoid the stress of constant travel to fight for the custody of her child. Our attorneys filed the appropriate motions, the case was heard, and the judge found in favor of our client, dismissing the case in Harris County. Our client has since filed for custody in her home state, so that her daughter may remain in school and be united with her little brother.
