I focus in the area of Elder Law, Estate Planning, Guardianship and Probate. I work with a Certified Elder Law Attorney in creating a Life Care Plan to help clients maneuver to legal roadblocks of aging. We strive to preserve client dignity. I also work closely with clients in drafting an estate plans.
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.
