We represent family members and others with rights under a will, and we represent personal representatives (also known as the “executor” or “executrix”) through the probate process. If a person dies without a will, the process is similar except that state law dictates who receives estate assets.
Most probates are settled easily and without conflict. Occasionally probates need court intervention. Parties can often resolve differences through mediation rather than litigation. We encourage settling cases reasonably and to our clients’ advantage, however, we are ready and able to go to court for our probate clients.
