Probate and Estate Administration
When a loved one passes away, either with or without an estate plan, the estate must be administered. This could mean a probate process in the courts or using the expertise of a estate administration attorney to properly administer a full estate plan outside of court. If an estate plan was properly set up prior to your loved one passing away we can normally help the family through a private process, making sure that all the assets of the deceased go to whom they want. If an estate plan was not set up, we can help the family navigate the probate process through the court, making sure that all deadlines and requirements are met, and that the family retains all of their rights during the process.
