Lawyers are ready to help during these stressful times. Schedule your consultation >
If a loved one or someone you know has died and left you with property or named you as the executor of their will, you may need an attorney to assist you with the probate process. First, you should consult with an attorney to see if your case will be purely transactional, or if there are conflicts between parties, you may need a litigation attorney that concentrates in probate. You should also do a search for a qualified and experienced attorney with proper accolades who specializes in handling probate matters. Consider any special needs you may have, such as benefiting from an attorney who speaks another language, or an attorney that practices in multiple states if that is needed for certain probate issues. Finally, find an attorney whose personality will meet those needs. You will want an attorney who is detail oriented and make sure the attorney is committed to efficient communication with you throughout your probate case.
