About Margaret

Practice areas
  1. Probate
    40%
    When someone dies, that person leaves behind an estate that consists of assets and debts that may need to be processed through an administration of that estate. A family member or loved one can request to be appointed to handle the administration of the decedent's estate. It is very important to consult with a probate attorney to discuss whether an administration is necessary, and the possible alternatives to probate.

  2. Estate planning
    30%
    We recommend that an estate plan start with four basic documents: (1) Last Will and Testament, (2) Legal Power of Attorney, (3) Medical Power of Attorney, and (4) Directive to Physicians (aka "Living Will"). In addition to these four basic documents, you may need additional documents to cover your estate planning needs (ie. Trust, Declaration of Guardian for Minor Children.) It is best to discuss your estate plan with an attorney. We look forward to creating an ideal estate plan for you!

Very pleased with first experience with a Probate
This law office exhibited the highest in professional and customer focused service. All communications were well executed. As a private person this was a first experience for me to work with a probate lawyer and I was placed at ease and this firm made a very difficult time in my life a lot easier than I could have imagined. Many thanks!

Knowledgable and reasonable
At a time when people are vulnerable and easily misguided, Margaret was very honest and helpful. She was VERY reasonably priced and went beyond my expectations.

Friendly Staff
All of Ms. Crosby's staff were friendly & professional. Ms. Crosby spoke to us, not down at us, and treated us as friends, not as customers. She made our legal experience easy & pleasant. Definitely will use her in the future.

Excellence
Margaret explained everything very well so we could understand what we needed and what we were getting for the money. She didn't try to oversell with product we didn't need, but she did make suggestions for those that might be of interest to us based on our current needs and living situations. We were very pleased with the work she for us.

Review of Margaret Jensen Crosby
Margaret Crosby put my will together in a short amount of time.I was very pleased with her hard work and her eagerness to include the wishes I wanted included in my will. She gave me some more ideas to include that I had not thought of. Her help and professionalism was much appreciated.

Margaret Jensen Crosby Review
We worked with Margaret to update our wills. She responded very quickly to our request for information, provided us with useful information before our visit, and was very professional in processing our new wills. I highly recommend her.

Attorney/Mediator
Margaret represented me in a divorce proceeding 3 years ago. She is professional, knowledgeable, and very reasonably priced. My divorce was agreed upon during mediation (which I preferred because both parties have control of the outcome). Her expertise as a certified mediator was a bonus. She made sure to explain the process clearly and effectively, which put me at ease.
