- Living wills
- Estate administration
- Estate litigation (including will contests)
- Estate tax preparation (federal)
The probate process represents a court-supervised transfer of title of an asset to a living person’s name. The recipient’s identity depends upon whether or not the decedent left corresponding instructions in a will or, if no will is found, which statutes apply that identify the recipient by default. Though it may seem simple, some probate matters may be complex. A lawyer at our firm can help you understand your options, rights and obligations within the scope of the probate process.
