Planning for your death can be confusing, complex, and is often a topic that most people avoid. However, sooner or later, we all are going to die, and planning ahead can reduce the strain that accompanies the death of a loved one.

The term “probate” is associated with estate planning and describes the legal process by which a decedent’s will proceeds through the court system. When a loved one passes away, no matter how much or how little planning he or she did ahead of time, it can be a difficult and confusing time for the one left to deal with the estate.  We are here to help you through that time. Our office can advise you whether or not probate is necessary and help you through the myriad of legal documents necessary to probate an estate.
