Probate is a court-supervised process for identifying and gathering the assets of a deceased person (decedent), paying the decedent’s debts, and distributing the decedent’s assets to his or her beneficiaries.
Having to administer an estate, following the passing of a loved one, can be a challenging process. It can be very difficult to make decisions during a time of grieving.
At our elder law attorney firm, we understand the gravity of these trying times and are well versed in assisting our clients with all aspects of probate and estate administration, including all federal tax implications.
Probate proceedings ensure that a deceased party’s debts are paid to the right debtors, and that all financial affairs are successfully concluded. Probate also makes certain that all remaining assets are properly distributed to the rightful beneficiaries.
This is vital in cases where there is no will available. However, the probate process is also needed even when a valid will is available, to ensure that everything is carried out correctly.
Our law firm is well qualified to handle a wide variety of probate matters. We have a great deal of experience assisting clients in dealing with issues – from the simple matter of inheriting property from a parent, to more complex issues like administering an estate that is outside of the United States.
We pledge to our clients:
We will consistently be accessible to our clients.
We will, without delay, return all telephone calls and e-mails.
We will make certain our clients have a good understanding of their civil liberties throughout the entire legal process.
We are here as a guide for our clients, helping them to navigate their legal matters better.
Because probate, guardianship & estate planning issues often overlap one another, many of our clients require legal assistance in several of these areas at the same time.
Our law firm is pleased to assist our clients in making the most appropriate legal choices for their needs. We carefully pinpoint all of their legal options, and work hard to map out a legal strategy that will best address the client’s needs and interests.
We will always deliver the very best legal advice and service to all of our clients, regardless of the complexity of the issue – from setting up a will to contesting a complex inheritance from another country.
We deliver the highest quality, individualized service to each client, with the lowest possible fees. Maintaining our fees at favorable levels when offering clients legal help on their probate, guardianship, and/or trust matters is our goal.
