Six months prior to his death Dec. 23, 2015, the legendary Texas plaintiff lawyer Joe Jamail revised his will. At the same time, he revised documents governing a trust to which he asked to have poured all his outstanding assets.
As early as this week, Harris County probate court may act upon an application for probate of Jamail's will and testament, filed by his three sons, whom he named as co-independent executors of his estate. The sons filed their application Dec. 29, 2015.
In his will, however, Jamail, whom Forbes ranked as one of the world's billionaires, neither specified his assets or identified ultimately where they would go.
