Beneficiary Services

Mourning the death of a family member is a difficult time for anyone, but for the executor of an estate, it is typically even more so. Not only is he or she charged with tasks of overseeing service arrangements, assets, and life insurance proceeds, but it is almost always the executor who was closest to the deceased.  

If you were appointed the responsibility of handling a deceased loved one’s affairs and assets, an attorney with probate law experience can help to ensure the entire process goes smoothly from start to finish.

Estate Taxes

  • Outstanding bills and debt

  • Life Insurance policy benefits

  • Probate Court documents paperwork

  • Unknown and/or missing assets

  • Property appraisal

Intestate Services

Whatever the reason, if your loved one was unable to prepare a Last Will and Testament before passing away, it is not uncommon for tensions to arise amongst family members.  

You and your family do not have to navigate the process of probate alone. We can help mediate familial conflict and anxieties, help negotiate and determine who should proceed as administrator/s of the estate, secure and file renunciations, manage assets and checkbook of the estate, calculate estate taxes, and ensure all arrangements are made fairly and compliant with state probate laws.

Estate Planning

No matter how large or small your estate, you owe it to yourself and your family to prepare for the inevitable. Having the support of an attorney who is experienced in probate law can help give you the peace of mind that you deserve now, and make life a little easier on grieving loved ones later.

There are a number of ways we can help plan ahead for the future and get your affairs in order today. Our attorney writes Last Wills and Testaments, drafts living wills, living trusts provide legal consultation when appointing a power of attorney, and is equipped to step in as administrator or executor of the estate if needed.
