Probate & Estate Administration

When a friend or loved one dies, it is a stressful time. Regardless of whether they did any planning or not, there is going to be some amount of paperwork that needs to be done after they have passed away. If they had a will or had done no planning, then more than likely a probate proceeding will be required to get the assets through the court process and to the correct beneficiaries.

If the loved one prepared a revocable trust and all of the assets were owned in the trust, then there are still some steps that have to be taken but they can be all done outside of the probate court. This usually means that it will take less time, be less expensive and be less public. We have handled the administration of many estates both inside and outside of the probate process and we can successfully guide you through the appropriate process as well.
