We enjoy helping our clients probate the estates of their loved ones. We get the job done in a timely manner, while keeping client stress levels at the minimum.
Unfortunately, people are usually forced to do probates at a time when they are grieving, and would rather not have to deal with complex legal paperwork.
We do everything we can to make the probate process simple and understandable. We explain what must be done, and how and when to do it.
Often, there is at least one heir in a family who is experiencing financial difficulty. That person pressures the executor of the estate to complete the probate in a hurry. This time pressure puts stress on the executor, and sometimes creates bad feelings between family members. That's why we work hard to complete every probate as quickly as the law allows.
We do not have any magic that enables us to shorten the legally-required notice periods, but what we can promise is that we do everything we can do to ensure that each new action that is required in the probate process is completed in a timely manner.
We've also discovered, over the years, that it helps a great deal to have an attorney representing the executor who has integrity and who can commicate with all of the heirs of the estate in a way that inspires trust. When family members trust that the administration of the estate is in good hands, there are far fewer problems that arise between family members. That's why we do everything we can to keep all family members fully informed throughout each step of the probate process.
