Jeffrey Watters

Gray Reed McGraw, Counsel

Houston, Texas

Jeff Watters focuses on trusts and estates litigation and administration matters for clients throughout Texas. His litigation practice is largely devoted to resolving fiduciary duty claims arising from the administration of trusts and estates, a unique and challenging area of law where significant dollar amounts are typically at stake and no two cases are ever alike. He also takes lead on a variety of traditional estate litigation matters, including will contests, will interpretation suits and accounting disputes. In addition, Jeff serves as an advisor to executors and trustees on the entire range of estate-related issues, including guidance on the legal and ethical components of administration, making timely filings with the court, maximizing tax efficiency, and handling modification proceedings when necessary. Jeff has significant experience in other complex litigation matters as well. He has successfully defended numerous taxpayers in federal estate, gift and income tax litigation and controversies, including disputes and litigation with the Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service.
