Probate & Estate Administration
Probate is the legal process by which a person’s debts are paid and assets are distributed upon his or her death. Estate Administration includes the probate process as well as non-probate transfers of the deceased’s assets. Individual state laws direct the probate court how to distribute the deceased’s estate. State laws and procedures vary greatly, so it is important to consult a firm with expertise in this area of the law to ensure that the deceased’s assets are distributed correctly.
We handle a variety of estate planning matters, including planning for the distribution of an individual’s property at his or her death and taking into account wills, taxes, insurance, property, and trusts so as to gain the maximum benefit of all laws, while, at the same time, carrying out the person’s wishes. By way of example, estate planning may include wills, spousal and children’s trusts, special needs trusts, revocable living trusts, advance medical directives, powers of attorney (general, special and medical), as well as an array of planning techniques used to protect assets from unnecessary probate costs. It is our aim to have our clients avoid the probate process altogether.
