Probate

We focus on helping people prepare their estate to avoid, or at least minimize the necessity of going through probate. Even with the best of preparation, however, it is sometimes hard to completely avoid probate. If you have a loved one who has recently passed away, it is important to have a skilled attorney at your side. Even with uncontested estates, a good attorney can help speed the process along and avoid any unneeded stress.

What is Probate?

If you’ve never gone through the process before, it can be confusing. Probate is a legal event that includes a variety of different activities. The most common include:

  • Proving that the will of the deceased is valid
  • Putting together an inventory of the properties and other assets
  • Settling debts from the estate
  • Handling any tax burdens
  • Distributing the remaining assets according to the desires of the deceased

Having an attorney at your side to walk you through the process is important to avoid further complications.
