  • Edward Coe Tredennick

    Keith is an excellent probate attorney. He has been instrumental in helping with our mass tort clients. Many of these clients have issues regarding their estates and often these clients are not located in Texas. Keith, unlike most Texas probate attorneys I know, has relationships with other probate attorneys in all fifty (50) states. This has proved invaluable for our firm. What's more, Keith is always able to help on a moment's notice. I cannot recommend him enough.
