Our probate practice is prepared to help clients develop a testamentary plan that maximizes the use and benefit of an individual or couple’s estate assets. Whether our clients require simple or complex testamentary documents, we will draft them in accordance with the client’s testamentary plan. In addition to testamentary documents, we provide clients with a durable power of attorney and advance health care directive. These documents provide important direction relating to property and health care decisions in the event a client becomes incapacitated.

We also represent estates during an administration before the probate court in contested and uncontested matters. We work to ensure that the estate’s interests are advanced before the court and that the estate successfully navigates the probate process.

Estate Administrations

Upon the passing of a loved one, we offer our services to next-of-kin for the purpose of walking them through the process of “probating” an estate.

We begin by explaining the process in detail and then we gather necessary information for the purpose of opening the estate with the probate court.

We work to discover potential issues before they arise and then we work to remediate identified issues swiftly. We also broker negotiations among interested parties to ensure that the probate process moves forward.

Our goal is to reduce the anxiety and concern of our clients as we work through the process of managing the estate.

Estate Contests

On occasion, it may be necessary to challenge the validity of an estate or testamentary document.

Due Diligence

When next-of-kin or interested parties wish to learn more about the status of an estate, we will go to work on their behalf to discover such information and report our findings.

Due to the custom nature of the above-described services, they are offered at rate of $265 per billable hour.*
