Probate and Estate Administration
For most people, estate planning takes the form of a will. Administering the estate when a will is involved requires going through the probate process.
Probate can be complicated to navigate through. Our lawyers have done this many times before. We know how to handle every step of estate administration, from making certain all assets are accounted for to distributing those assets in accordance with the will. Our law firm can help you through this.
If you have been named as your loved one's successor trustee, our attorneys can help you understand your duties. We will stand with you to help wind up your loved one's affairs.
When a trust is involved, there is typically no court process required. You will not have to deal with probate. However, there are still steps that need to be taken. You can be certain that we will help you take them.
Whether your loved one's estate plan includes a will or a trust, there is always a possibility of a dispute. Our lawyers offer estate litigation services to resolve these disputes.
