    Probating a Will or administering an estate without a will can be a complicated and confusing matter.  Moreover, the need to undertake these activities comes at the difficult time following a death in the family.


     Probate and estate administration are the processes of distributing a person's assets after he or she has died.  Probate is a formal court process that determines how portions of the estate and other assets will be distributed.   Most estates can be administered without many complications, especially in cases where the deceased has left a will or trust that was carefully considered.


     Probate generally lasts several months, occasionally over a year before all the property is distributed, and can incur substantial court and attorney costs.  Probate can be a painful, costly, and often times misunderstood process.  We work with our clients to provide clear, competent, and efficient services; and see that the wishes of the decedent are met within the confines of the law, providing our clients with the peace of mind that these matters are accomplished accurately and completely.
