Estate Administration & Probate
Our team has been assisting individuals and families since 1985. While the death of a loved one is never easy, after their death everything they owned becomes part of their estate. Determining the beneficiaries, those who receive assets or property, depends on whether the deceased had a will or not. There are many issues to consider during estate administration and probate. You need experienced, local and trusted attorneys to guide you through the process.
While most assets become part of the estate, some assets do not, such as life insurance and retirement accounts with beneficiaries. We can provide you guidance regarding what assets need to be included in the estate and which assets do not need including.
Our firm takes pride in providing our clients with solutions to their legal issues. Our experienced attorneys and staff can guide you through a quick and efficient probate process. Our team can accomplish the following:
