Probate and Estate Law

Most people don't like to think about what would happen to their family if they became disabled or died. However, proper planning will reduce the potential stress on your family. The right plan can protect the value of your estate and spare your loved ones of unnecessary hassles and legal conflicts.

Probate is a legal system of administering the estate of a deceased person by resolving claims and distributing the deceased person's property according to the wishes set forth in a will. Estate planning is, simply put, creating a set of instructions for what should be done with your property and care before and after you die. Even the most basic estate plan should include a:

  • Last Will and Testament
  • Financial Power of Attorney
  • Health Care Power of Attorney
  • Living Will

No matter how much or how little you own, a basic estate plan is essential to ensuring that your family is not burdened by the hurdles of settling your estate without protection and guidance.
