Probate Litigation & Estate Administration

Probate is the legal procedure where property and assets are transferred after a person’s death. Although the definition sounds simple, probate can be very complicated as well as emotional and stressful. Seeking counsel from a probate law attorney who knows how to nagivate the complicated process and court procedures, whether or not there is a Last Will and Testament, ensures a smooth and fair transition for all.

Effective probate counsel can include proactive steps such as notifying heirs of their rights, transferring legal titles, and appointing conservatorships. Taking inventory of property or assets correctly, along with filing legally required annual returns and submitting court reporting, is a key step with many nuances that having an experienced probate attorney can help you successfully navigate. Furthermore, in the event a dispute arises, having someone familiar with the details of the estate that can ensure all steps in the probate process have been handled appropriately will lead to your best legal outcome.
