The Texas Probate Email Mailing List
Glenn Karisch, author of this site, also sponsors an email mailing list focusing on matters of interest to Texas attorneys practicing in the estate planning, probate, trust and elder law areas. Subscribers can send messages to one email address, and all other subscribers get the message. This is a good way to ask the 1,200 or so subscribers questions about difficult topics, as well as a way to keep up with current events. During legislative sessions, Glenn Karisch posts frequent updates on probate legislation to the list.
Persons can subscribe and unsubscribe themselves, as well as change many options for their subscription, by going to this page:
Some of the new features include a digest version of the list and list archives. The archives will be prospective only -- old messages are not in the archive, only those posted since the conversion to mailman.
I have asked that the list address not change, so that messages to "firstname.lastname@example.org" will continue to work. However, it may be necessary to use the address "email@example.com" . Please be patient during the transition to the new software.

Following are the policies of the
Texas Probate email mailing list as of November 2007. If you have any
comments or suggested changes to the policies, please post your comments or
suggestions to Glenn Karisch PRIVATELY at
Also, if you notice noncompliance with these policies in postings by your
fellow subscribers, (a) don't sweat the small stuff and (b) please post your
objections politely to the offender and to Glenn Karisch at
3. Nonreliance on postings. No one (attorneys
and nonattorneys alike) should rely on the correctness or accuracy of any
posting to the list. Postings to the list are general discussions and do not
constitute legal advice. While list members should make every effort to
provide accurate and authoritative information in regard to the subject
matters that are covered, subscribers should realize that the list owner
does not monitor or review such information in order to determine whether it
is accurate, appropriate or legal, nor does he determine if the subscribers
who are posting such information are who they say they are or that they are
engaged in the business of rendering of legal, accounting, or other
professional advice or services. If legal advice or other expert assistance
or services are required, the services of a competent professional person
should be sought. The content of this list is provided "AS IS" and without
warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited
to, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular
purpose, or non-infringement, to the extent such exclusions are permitted by
law. The content of this list may from time to include technical
inaccuracies or typographical error, and changes may be made to its content
from time to time without notice.
5. Anti-spam/anti-virus rules.
6. Poster's firm name and city of practice. Persons posting to this list should include their full names, firm name (if they practice in a firm) and city of practice in each post. Attorneys who don't practice in a firm should identify themselves as an attorney. Nonattorneys who post to the list (see #2 above) also should include that fact in their posts. Examples:
8. Nonconfidentiality of postings. All
postings to the list and all responses to postings shall be deemed to be
non-confidential. All subscribers to this list shall be free to copy, print,
reproduce, use, disclose or distribute any of the information that is set
forth in such responses provided proper credit is given to the source of the
