Probate Process

Many people try to navigate the probate process or administer a trust on their own. This can be confusing and unsettling. Fortunately, probate does not have to be as difficult as you may think, and a trust does not have to be an intimidating stack of papers.

Our probate and trust services include:

  • All forms of probate administration
  • Identifying, locating, and collecting estate assets
  • Representing family members through probate disagreements
  • Contesting and enforcing estate planning documents
  • Counseling trustees about their responsibilities
