Probate Matters/Estate Planning

In general, the probate process involves collecting the decedent's assets, liquidating liabilities, paying necessary taxes, and distributing property to heirs.

End of life decisions can be complicated. Clients are guided through the process of using various end-of-life tools, such as wills, powers of attorney, and physicians directives, to make estate planning less complicated for loved ones. Also, our firm offers probate services when a loved one dies – whether a will must be probated or heirs must be identified.  Our firm provides the services necessary to distribute and finalize a loved one’s estate.

Civil Litigation

Civil Litigation happens when two or more parties become tangled in a legal dispute seeking money or another specific performance rather than criminal sanctions. They must head to the courtroom for trial so a judge or jury can decide the matter instead.
