Probate is the legal process of proving a will valid, settling estate debt, and dispersing assets to heirs. In some cases, probate will be a smooth, seamless process. In others, family disputes and questions about the estate plan will bog down probate, thereby increasing time and money spent.

Our licensed attorneys will review your unique situation and make recommendations to meet the needs of your estate. They’ll also help you deal with the many tasks associated with probate.
When it comes to legal help during the probate process, your attorney will provide assistance in the following areas:
Finding the right probate lawyer is just as important as securing legal help during probate. First, consider how much help you actually need. Complex estate may require prolonged legal assistance as compared to simple estate. Discuss your needs with your attorney to make sure they’re able to offer the right level of service to help you.
You also want a legal professional that communicates in a clear and concise manner. Probate, and estate planning in general, is often complex. A good attorney will explain concepts in an easy-to-understand manner so you can play a proactive role in estate planning. You attorney should also have exacting attention to detail. Even in relatively straightforward probate cases, you must ensure that documents are filled in and filed correctly to prevent hang ups and delays from occurring.
