Estate planning and probate administration are linked together, but they do have their differences. In estate planning, individuals and/or businesses map out where and what they want to happen to themselves, their legal property, and their assets. Specifically we can draft wills and trusts (revocable and irrevocable).
Probate administration occurs after death. An individuals’ will is put into effect and orderly distribution of assets occurs. This is the phase when inheritance tax is paid and where will contest may occur.
Our attorneys understand the complexities that go into estate planning and probate administration. We help our clients understand what is needed to protect their assets. Our lawyers will litigate matters if necessary to ensure that their clients wishes are carried out.
