Over $1,000,000 Recovered From Texas Unclaimed Property

Attorney Steven K. Schwartz II Has Helped Clients Recover Over $1,000,000 in Unclaimed Estate Funds

Houston, Texas (April 22, 2020) – Attorney Steven K. Schwartz II of The Schwartz Law Firm is helping his clients gain access to unclaimed funds that they have inherited through the death of a loved one.  A service he generally provides through the ordinary practice of his business, has suddenly become more urgent in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.

“With the loss of jobs and income, families are looking for all possible sources of funds, and that includes inherited liquid assets” says Mr. Schwartz. “Recent reminders in the news about Texas Unclaimed Property have harped on funds that may be listed in your name. But there are a number of people who may be entitled to funds that are part of the estate of a deceased family member.”

Money from bank accounts, insurance policy proceeds, oil and gas mineral rights, and other financial assets of a deceased person can all end up with Texas Unclaimed Property if an estate is not probated quickly. “We’ve helped our clients recover over $1,000,000 in Texas Unclaimed Property to date; this money has been a relief to families struggling during the Covid-19 Pandemic.”

But Texas Unclaimed Property is not the only location of assets for a deceased loved one. For people who have died recently, liquid assets may still be held with financial institutions and insurance companies. “It is important for families who have recently lost a loved one, to contact a reputable probate attorney, and get the probate process started so they can gain access to these funds before it ends up at Texas Unclaimed Property, where it can take longer to get to.”

 The Schwartz Law Firm is a family run practice that represents clients in probate and estate matters.
