Probate And Estate Administration

When a person passes away, a probate court oversees the process of transferring the estate to the person's heirs. If the person did not have a valid estate plan, the court settles the affairs and tracks down relatives in a process that is time-consuming and expensive. An estate plan makes the process much easier, by providing instructions and appointing an executor or personal representative.

For executors and other clients, we help with paperwork, deadlines, taxes and the many tasks that come with administering an estate. Even with a good estate plan, however, the probate process isn't easy. You can be confident that we will lead you through these complicated matters with professionalism and integrity.
