    Probate is the legal process used to administer 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 intestate laws apply.

Very Professional and Honest
Mr. Rosofsky initially replied to my request via Avvo. He then set up a time to call me. Mr. Rosofsky was very attentive and professional. He told me what he could do for me and even emailed to me the statue as it related to my case. Just an upstanding person and sorry I could not hire him.
