Efficient Probate Services
I understand the importance of a smooth and efficient probate process. I will work diligently to administer the estate, distribute assets, settle debts, and address any legal issues that may arise, providing you with peace of mind during this difficult time.
With a living trust, you can avoid probate.

However, not all assets should be placed in a trust, and some assets may still go through probate if they are not properly titled or designated to the trust. Working with an estate planning attorney can help ensure that the right assets are transferred into the trust to achieve the desired probate avoidance benefits.
I believe that estate planning is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. To better serve you, I offer a free consultation during which I help you assess your asset protection and estate planning goals.
