Guiding You Through The Probate Process

Our attorneys will sit down with you and review what is really happening in your particular situation. We will determine when and where it will be necessary to probate the estate. We will help you with all aspects of the probate process, including:

  • Explaining the probate process to you so that you know what to expect as things move forward
  • Performing an asset search to learn about the property that belongs to the estate
  • Determining the heirs of the estate and where they are located
  • Protecting the estate from any disputes or litigation that may arise, such as will contests
