    An estate planning attorney helps individuals by drafting documents that protect their assets or distribute their assets after they are unable to make decisions or they pass away. We fully understand tax and probate laws and can protect your rights throughout any estate planning situation.

    Probate is the legal process of transferring property after someone’s death. This is a court-supervised process that organizes this transfer. Probate of a will shows the court that the person who died followed all legal requirements in drafting their will with the help of an estate planning attorney. The process of probating an estate includes collecting all property, paying all debts/taxes owed by the estate, collecting all rights to income or dividends, etc., settling disputes as well as distributing or transferring the remaining property to heirs/beneficiaries.

    An estate planning attorney also can help individuals avoid probate, and draft a will, trust, durable power of attorney, and healthcare directive. No matter what the document is, our estate planning lawyers help their clients to organize the future distribution of assets easily.
