What You Need To Know
While probate can be avoided, it does not happen often. It also has a bad reputation for being time-consuming. Our job is to effectively and efficiently guide you in the right direction. While it is possible to handle it on your own, you could make silly mistakes that could delay the process. Our attorneys make sure things are handled correctly. We can help you gather all of the decedent’s assets, pay off any debts and distribute property to the necessary heirs.
Probate starts off by making sure a will is valid. Wills and trusts are estate planning documents that aim to clearly express your loved one’s wishes. In some cases, a person can contest these documents. They will do so because they feel they did not get what they are entitled to. Whether you are dealing with a contested or uncontested estate plan, we are here to help. You are already mourning the loss of someone you care about. Having a lawyer by your side can take some of the stress off your shoulders.
