Probate Estates

Probate is a court process that involves the determination of the validity of a will, collection and inventory of assets, and the distribution of the proceeds from the estate. If a person does not have a will, the law has a formula to distribute his or her assets. There are specific rules with regard to spouses concerning what they receive. There are separate laws defining the share of a second, childless spouse. We can assist you in understanding the probate process and how best to handle the decedent’s affairs. We represent heirs, executors and members of the family in probate court.

In some situations, such as a will or trust contest, the issue may need to be resolved through litigation. Our firm provides representation in contested estates to address these matters. We are committed to helping our clients with will contests. Our firm works to minimize stress and anxiety — we focus on the legal issues and our clients’ best interests.
