Wills, Estates, & Probate

A loved one has passed away. Now what?

When someone dies, the estate (all of his/her property, money, and belongings) needs to be handled. In addition, bills need to be paid, accounts closed, property sold or distributed, and more. Estates follow very specific procedures and they can become complicated very quickly. In order to ensure that everything is handled smoothly and accurately, it is important that you work with an experienced law firm.

When should I start thinking about making a will?

Right now. Creating a will gives you control over everything you leave behind. If you die without one, the State will decide how to distribute everything you owned. This may not be what you want; your wishes—whatever they were while you were alive—will no longer matter. Unfortunately, accidents can happen at any time and you don’t want to leave your family unprepared (especially if you have children under 18). Making a will ensures that your family will be cared for after you’re gone and saves them from arguing over inheritance.
