Probate

When you’ve just lost a loved one, the added stress of having to go through a legal proceeding to settle their estate seems particularly acute.

If your disabled child has recovered a personal injury or medical malpractice settlement, actually getting the money requires another complicated process.

Now what?

Probate is not always something that can be avoided. Sometimes families agree; sometimes they don’t. Whether it’s a will, a trust, an estate, or a guardianship, diligent, committed representation is the key to a successful Probate Court proceeding.
