Local Probate and Estate Planning Lawyers

probate attorneysDeath and dying are amongst life's most stressful events that nobody wants to face, and is the result of painstaking financial battles. If an individual passes away without a will, or without any estate planning in place, their estate will be administered with the assistance and guidance of the probate court. If a properly executed and funded trust is in place at the time of death, the probate process is often avoided. A properly executed estate plan does more than just transfer assets upon death, it can nominate guardians for minor children, appoint fiduciaries to manage money for minors and individuals with disabilities, eliminate or reduce taxes, preserve government benefits, minimize family conflict, and simplify the probate process or avoid court intervention altogether.
