Call Today for Legal Assistance with Estate and Probate Administration

We live in an ever more complex world of taxes, family structures and business succession needs that can make estate planning more difficult. What type of a will or a trust do I use to pass my estate to my heirs? How do I make things fair in a mixed family? What about life insurance, taxes and protecting the family business?

When an individual dies, their estate may pass into what is known as probate, a legal process whereby the court will determine things like the validity of a decedent's will and the distribution of property to heirs mentioned in the will. Though you do have the right to represent yourself in probate court, many seek help from a qualified attorney, especially after discovering how complex the probate process and its laws can be.
