COUNSEL FOR PROBATE LAW
Probate is a widely misunderstood area of the law, but it is one that can affect all of us. Put simply, probate is the process through which a person’s property is distributed to his or her heirs after he or she passes away. Even with the help of a valid will and other estate planning tools, probate can be a slow-going, technically demanding process. Often, it is also an emotionally difficult ordeal for people who have recently lost a loved one.
