What is Probate?

As an attorney dealing with probate cases for over 20 years, I can assist you in safely and efficiently negotiating the probate process. Working together, we will ensure that you comply with all the legal requirements associated with the estate. This will protect you so that you are not later held personally liable for actions you took or failed to take while acting as personal representative of the estate.

If you are an heir or beneficiary in a probate estate, you may find yourself in a position of not understanding what is happening or not trusting the person nominated or appointed to act as personal representative. It is much better to have counsel representing your interests during the probate process, rather than try to set aside distributions or re-open estates after the process is complete. At that point, time limits and waivers may prevent you from having your concerns heard by the court.
