I enjoy helping people. My practice focuses solely on probate matters. My job is to complete the probate process as efficiently and painlessly for my clients as possible. I have found that paying the costs of probate can add unneeded stress, so I will advance all of the fees and costs for the probate. No money is required to complete the probate. I will be reimbursed at the end of the case. Appearing in Court can be stressful, so I handle all of the Court hearings and in 98% of my cases my clients never appear in Court. Less stress, happier clients.
I am happy to introduce my clients to very competent and trustworthy professionals (realtor, accountant and stock broker) during and after the probate case to assist with all sorts of issues including taking the laboring oar on selling the house, stocks, cars and other personal items. During the case, I return calls/emails quickly and am honest and forthright. I try to foresee any issues and take care of everything.
This can be a scary process (though if you retain me it will not be) and there is no such thing as a dumb question, so please call me now and let me explain the probate process and answer all your questions over the phone for free. Usually the paperwork and the entire probate can be handled by email and mail reducing the need to take off work to visit my office although you are always welcome. I also entertain probate litigation/undue influence cases on contingency. Thank you for considering me as your attorney. Let me ease your stress!
