If a loved one has recently passed away, it can be an overwhelming and emotional time for everyone, especially if they had any debts that need to be settled or assets that need to be distributed. Speaking with an attorney is also a better way to handle your will rather than taking chances with a free online will or a legal zoom will that’s cookie-cutter and may not adequately address your situation or your wishes.

The process of dividing assets and settling debts can be complicated and exhausting for the executor of the will (or the administering of the estate, in the absence of a will). Hiring a probate lawyer will help ease the complicated process faced by the executor of the estate and any surviving family members.

We can provide answers to the questions you have about wills and probate.
