Knowledgeable Guides Through The Process
Probate is the process by which a deceased person’s estate is administered to loved ones and heirs. While these cases can be simple, sometimes complex legal and tax issues arise.
During probate, a personal representative will be charged with collecting all property of the decedent (the person whose estate is being administered), administering payment to creditors, distributing property to beneficiaries and making decisions on key issues regarding the estate.
Our attorneys can help you understand the options and what is ultimately possible. We can bring in the necessary tax tools and vehicles to create smart, efficient plans that eliminate problems and red flags, so that what is yours remains yours.
Even though this is a changing area of the law, our attorneys stay up to date about smart ways to settle estates without running into legal issues or alarming the IRS.
