I am a 16 year attorney as my profile proclaims, but while I love my career, I have interests outside of law that keep me balanced. Whether I am releasing some frustration on the hockey rink, recharging on the river fly fishing or spending time with my family, I try and keep everything in perspective. It is that same balance and perspective I take with me to work for the benefit of my clients.

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.
