Keith’s presentation, “Standing: How Much Is a Ticket to the Dance,” will explore who is eligible to file an application to probate a will or to appoint a guardian. It will also cover who is and is not eligible to serve as executor, administrator, or guardian. Related topics included in the presentation are in limine hearings in which “standing” is challenged along with motions to require security for costs in probate and guardianship cases.

The presentation “Independent Administrations,” will cover independent administrations in probate matters from the initial filing until the closing of the estate and will include sample forms to handle each stage of the process.

Keith will present “Independent Administrations” to the Tarrant County Probate Bar Association Bi-Annual Nuts and Bolts Seminar on September 18.

Keith practices primarily in the areas of estate planning, probate, guardianship and tax, with particular emphasis on the taxation of individuals, estates and trusts and all types of transfer taxes (estate, gift and generation skipping taxes). He is also an experienced litigator in probate and guardianship cases, including will contests and guardianship disputes.
