A simple and efficient process
Contrary to what many may say, the process of probate is only as complicated and expensive as the decedent's estate requires. If plans have been made in advance, then the administration of the estate is made simple and efficient, and it can be accomplished in a relatively short period of time. If, on the other hand, a person neglects to plan in advance for their death, then the administration of the estate can be complicated, inefficient, costly, and time consuming.
Even if a person has substantial property, the administration of the estate can be made relatively simple by proper prior planning. Conversely, a relatively modest estate can be very costly in terms of time, money, and aggravation if no prior planning is in place.
We'll bring our experience to the table
Our commitment to our clients is to make the process of probate as simple, inexpensive, efficient, and short as it can possibly be, but we can only work with matters as they stand at the moment of death. We recommend that you take the time and invest the relatively modest sum it takes to properly plan your estate. This effort and investment is what makes the whole process of probate easy. The lack of planning is what makes probate hard.
The initial consultation regarding either the planning or probate of an estate is free. In this consultation, we will attempt to provide you with our best estimate of both the time and expense involved in the engagement. Thereafter, if you chose to engage us to represent you, we would enter into an engagement agreement that would fully disclose all of the particulars regarding the anticipated engagement, to the extent that such matters can be predicted.
