Probate & Estates

The loss of a loved one can be one of the most difficult situations you’ll ever face. Unfortunately, dealing with the relationships (especially in blended families) and the distribution of your loved one’s assets–especially if he or she did not leave behind a will–can add stress to an already emotional time. Probate administration is the legal process by which assets from a deceased individual are distributed among beneficiaries.

Probate has become a lot like divorce – all the hidden issues come to the surface, and all the things nobody wanted to say while your loved one was alive are said again and again.  It’s imperative to have strong, compassionate counsel.

Probate law is a unique and complex field. That’s why it’s important to work with a lawyer whose practice focuses on probate cases and estate administration.
