I have specialized in all types of cases in the probate and guardianship division of the circuit court for over 25 years, and Ienjoy it very much. Client contact is very important to me because I understand how difficult it is to lose a loved one or to have a family member lose their capacity to handle their personal or financial affairs.
Probate is the legal process used to carry out a person's will after their death; a probate attorney advises you on how to perform the steps in the process. In general, once you have identified and collected the dead person's belongings, including their money, property, and other assets, you pay the person's debts and taxes. Once all debts have been paid, you distribute their money and property according to the language of the will. If there is no will, the laws of the state where the dead person lived control how the property is distributed. A probate attorney helps you plan what happens to your property when you die, as they can probate wills and act as your probate court estate representative. A probate attorney also represents family members and beneficiaries wishing to challenge wills.
