When Someone Dies With A Will

This is what probate is for. Probate can be handled efficiently, resulting in the distribution of assets according to a person’s last will and testament. We help executors with every step of the process, from filing the will to carrying out the distribution of assets.

When Someone Dies Without A Will

This is a situation that can quickly become complicated if not handled properly. One of the primary benefits of having a will is sparing your loved ones from the potential risks of administering an estate according to intestacy laws, which may or may not reflect the wishes of the deceased.

We can guide you through the process of choosing an administrator and making sure that the estate is properly administered.

Our team can represent you in any litigation stemming from someone objecting to the will. We have been handling estate planning as well as estate-related litigation for more than 25 years. We have the skills and resources necessary to obtain results in the courtroom in order to protect the interests of our clients.
