Estate Planning and Probate

Estate Planning is an important step a person should take to make sure that his or her final property and health care wishes are honored, and that loved ones are provided for in his or her absence. This is usually done through the preparation and execution of different types of Wills. In some cases, a Trust may be necessary, though this is not common. Our office can help you determine if you may need a special Trust set up during your Will consultation.

Probate is the process by which the affairs of the deceased are settled. Probate courts also handle issues such as name changes and guardianship proceedings.
