Practice Areas: Probate & Estate Planning

PROBATE & ESTATE PLANNING - Probate is the process that occurs upon a person's death and allows real estate to be transfered, a decedent's will to be established as controlling, and allows for the distribution of property after payment all debts and charges against a decedent's estate. Estate planning is a financial plan that maximizes profit for your intended beneficiaries upon your death. A will is a written document directing the distribution of a person's property upon their death.
