Wills

A Will is the legal document which expresses the client's wishes with regard to disposition and control of client's assets upon his death. The Will also serves other important functions, such as naming Guardians for the client's minor children upon the client's death.

When executing a Will, the client should concurrently execute documents relating to his incapacity and death, including:

  • Power of Attorney
  • Living Will
  • Healthcare Proxy
  • Burial Instructions

Probate and Estate Administration

Probate and/or Administration is the court process which gives an Executor the authority to act for a deceased person's estate. The Executor must have this court authority to transfer the deceased person's bank accounts, brokerage accounts, real estate titles, and other assets to the proper beneficiaries. Probate is the proceeding when the deceased person dies with a will. Similar court procedures exist when the deceased person had no will (estate administration) and where the deceased person died with property in multiple jurisdictions (ancillary probate).

Our firm guides its clients through the entire Probate or Administration process, including the following steps:

  • Identifying and contacting heirs and other necessary parties
