AND ESTATE ADMINISTRATION
Probate is the process of gathering and inventorying a deceased person’s property, paying all debts and taxes owed and distributing any remaining property to decedent’s beneficiaries. Our firm will help you inventory and value the property and assets and assist you in gathering all documents that may be necessary to probate the estate. We will explain you the process, legal and tax implications, and work with you to make sure that your or the the decedent’s last wishes are properly carried out.
While many people mistakenly believe that estate planning is only for individuals with substantial assets, the reality is that anyone over the age of eighteen should have an estate plan in place. An estate plan gives you the ability to direct who will receive your property upon your death rather than state intestacy laws dictating the distribution of your estate. Regardless of whether you are a recent college graduate with few assets or a high net worth individual with a multi-million dollar stock portfolio, an estate planning attorney at our firm can help you to get your affairs in order so that will contests and other estate administration disputes can be avoided in the future.
