Probate

Scope of Practice:

The death of a loved one is a traumatic event. Oftentimes, estates must be probated upon death and you don't know where to begin.  The probate process involves a series of events which culminate in the final distribution of assets to heirs.  Throughout the process, many legal issues arise and our attorneys are here to assist you from the start to finish. Some of the areas we can help you with include:

  • Assist the family with the basic knowledge of probating an estate
  • Help to collect and research all assets owned by the decedent
  • Prepare the transfer documents for real estate, business interests and financial accounts
  • Prepare and file all court documents, inventories and accountings with the court
  • Assist with disposing of personal property and the sale of real estate
  • Prepare the fiduciary income tax returns and federal estate tax returns where necessary

Whatever your needs may be, we are here to assist you.
