Our attorneys will guide you through every step of the probate process

We are experienced in the complex legal challenges that come with handling the affairs of a departed loved one.

Probate is the court process of proving the validity of and then overseeing that the instructions provided in the wills are followed properly and the estate is correctly administered.  When there is no will, the process is simply referred to as estate administration. Whether you have just lost a spouse or a parent or you’ve just received a letter from the Court, it is often a challenge just to know where to start.
We want you to feel confident that you are in control of the process and that everything is done right, as the law requires. Most importantly, to every extent possible, our probate attorneys want to help you carry out your loved one’s wishes as they would have wanted. When you engage one of our attorneys to represent you, they will guide you through every step of the probate process.

What our clients say about us

Walter is a fantastic attorney who you can trust with life's most important matters.

I have known and worked with him for years. I believe what sets him apart most from other attorneys that I have known is he is creative. He thinks outside the box in a way that often leads to the most favorable scenario for his clients. I have also sent close friends and family members to him for estate planning and they could not have had more glowing reports.
