Probate and Estate Administration


Probate and Estate Administration

Probate is the court oversight process that families go through after the death of a loved one to ensure that their assets pass to the proper people. Although we try to avoid probate via estate planning (see "Asset Planning", above), there are times when families have no choice but to go through probate.

I can help families navigate the probate process from the Petition for Probate to the Order of Complete Settlement. It is critical to me that my clients understand each step in the process and feel reassured that things are progressing smoothly. Probate can be lengthy and emotionally taxing; let me help you through it.
