Estate planning involves putting your affairs in order so that when you pass away or become disabled, those you trust the most can provide you with the assistance you need and to ensure that everything you worked so hard for during your lifetime gets passed on to the people you wish to receive them after your death. We can help you administer a loved one’s estate while they are sick, disabled, or mentally incompetent. We can also help you to manage a loved one’s affairs upon his/her death.
The term “probate” refers to court protective proceedings. Those include guardianships, conservatorships, administration of estates belonging to deceased persons, Will and trust contests, and court supervision of the administration of a trust, or the removal, when necessary of trustees who have failed to complete their duties as the trustee or who have breached their fiduciary duties to the beneficiaries of a trust.
