Probate Lawyer

When a loved one passes away, I am happy to visit with you about whether or not a necessity exists to probate his or her estate.

There are a number of different forms of probate I can use.  It is not like the old days when it cost a million dollars and took years to get through.  Not at all.  There is nothing to be intimidated about.

Is There A Will?

First, we determine whether the Decedent left a will.  A will does not necessarily have to be typewritten by a lawyer.  It can be handwritten and signed by the Decedent.  If that is the case, bring it in and let me evaluate whether it meets the statutory requirements to be probated as a holographic will. 

What Are The Assets Of The Estate

Second, we determine what the assets of the estate are. 

Type Of Administration Needed

Last, we pick the type of administration we need.  For a small estate, we may just do a Small Estate Affidavit.  For an estate with real estate and bank accounts, we may choose to do a Muniment of Title proceeding. 

I evaluate these on a case by case basis and fit the probate to your personal needs.  If there are significant tax implications in your case, we can address those as well. 

I look forward to working with you and guiding you through the probate process.
