An estate is simply the accumulation of your assets and debts over your lifetime. Estate planning is often a discomforting experience. But, it goes a long way in preparing you and your family for your death. Through estate planning, you get to decide what will happen to you, your children, your assets, and your debts after your death. Moreover, you give your family the peace of mind of knowing that your wishes were honored after your passing.
Estate administration involves the process of probating an estate and distributing the assets among the heirs. Our attorneys take the time to understand what our clients need us to do and evaluate the legal issues involved. We provide a consolidated approach to estate administration to ease the transition of a loved one's passing.
