Attorneys Experienced In All Probate-Related Matters

We can help you with even the most complex and challenging cases, in probate and trust litigation, and guardianship disputes.

The whole entire team of this firm is very helpful and kind. I was a wreck when I lost my mom and they have made the process easy. Great at keeping up to date and explaining anything I don’t understand.


Thank you Deborah for all of your AMAZING WORK! You alone are The Dream Team!!! I am so grateful I found you on the internet that day. You ROCK! Your team is I am certain a help to you but once you are in the courtroom It’s All You!!

Deborah, You have been such a blessing to my family. You are awesome! Thank you so much.

…Deborah, you were so wonderful with her and as her buddy I cannot thank you enough for all you did, much of it gratis I suspect. It takes attorneys like you to change the tide of how the elderly are respected and cared for. You took up her cause and gave her the better half of the last year of her life. I know she was so grateful and her close friends are. Bless you.

– LR

You are a pleasure to work with.

– JO

I just want to tell you it was a pleasure discussing my rather small inheritance issue. I knew I made the right decision to hire you and your firm after just a few minutes into the talks.

– JC

I want to thank Deborah Newman and her staff for their kindness and professionalism that I received during our consultation session. Even though she has handled million dollar cases over the years, she made my case seem just as important…

– ES

I would highly recommend Deborah Newman & her staff. Deborah’s kindness, concern & expertise was especially appreciated during a very difficult time. Her staff was wonderful, especially legal assistant, Phillip Lopez, who was always professional, polite & extremely helpful.

– CM

Deborah and her team were great to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. She not only knows the law, but maybe more importantly, she knows people and she handled our feelings with as much care as our case.

– WB

Great and helpful attorney’s and staff, eager to walk you through your difficult time. Highly recommended.

– BH

…I spoke with you about an issue concerning my mother. I thank you for helping me to redirect my thoughts concerning protecting her. I look back on the paper you gave me and smile at the 4 points you gave me to focus on instead of focus on what my sister was doing. It gave me so much peace and I just wanted to thank you!

– MF

Thank you and your team for your hard work. You are a fantastic law firm with a very robust and well delivered service product. You will be on my recommendation list if any of my friends in Houston need family law services.

Deb is well connected, gets the job done with a few calls!! Thank you mam.

– NS

Thank you, thank you, thank you.. This was a very long year and a half.. I am so thankful it is over and, of course, I know you are too. You did a wonderful job.!!!! I will be forever grateful to you and also to the attorney out of Miami who gave me your name..

Forever grateful,

When we needed an attorney, I asked an attorney friend of mine in Miami to recommend someone in Houston. Deborah Newman was our choice; a real god send she is totally professional and was very knowledgeable about our situation…

– Kim Clearly-Susan Stanford

Houston Probate Attorney Deborah Newman is Fantastic! She really cares about her client, not churning fees. She was kind, considerate and a strong advocate. I tried to get a referral, but no one had a suggestion, so I googled it. There were few to choose with Deborah’s credentials and experience…

We understand what you are going through, and we are here to help you through the process.
