There is no way to overstate the importance of estate planning and the benefits it provides for you and your family. No matter how old you are or what stage of life you are in, everyone should have an estate plan in place that consists of—at a minimum—a Last Will and Testament and advance medical directives. Probate & estate planning is your opportunity to make your wishes known with regard to your medical care and the distribution of your assets upon your death.
There are many ways to build an estate plan, and a number of strategies can be used to protect your beneficiaries from unnecessary tax burdens and penalties.

When a loved one dies, their assets, debts, and general estate must be dispersed to the proper parties. The will is validated in court, the property is appraised, and it is divided among the beneficiaries of the will. This process is known as probate.
In cases where the will is clear and updated, the process can be smooth.

As a team, we fight to ensure that your loved one's wishes are honored through every step of probate.
