Experienced Attorneys Providing Comprehensive Services

We offer a complete range of estate and probate law services, including:

We can help with all aspects of the estate administration process, starting with locating all of the decedent's assets and then assisting with asset valuations, if necessary. Whether property is to be passed on to a beneficiary "in kind," or requires liquidation, we can help. We will assist with resolution of estate obligations, estate tax filings, preparation of necessary accountings, court filings, and distribution of the estate residue to the heirs and beneficiaries of the estate.

We have the experience to help you navigate through the probate process. This process is intended to ensure that all property passes to heirs as intended or, in the absence of a will, as mandated by law. Sometimes it can be simple, but a dispute of any kind can add unique challenges. If a dispute or will contest arises, we are able to stand by your side to do what is right.

Our law firm can represent the executor of the estate or other interested parties. We know how to see that the terms of the will and all relevant laws are properly followed. We know how to help you find the rights solutions.
