When a loved one passes, it is often necessary to probate an estate in order to administer and follow the terms of the will or to manage the estate when there is no will (called intestate). A probate gives you the authority and ensures that assets and creditors are handled correctly. There are many steps and procedures that are required by law when probating a person’s estate. We help you navigate those steps and procedures to ensure an efficient and timely administration of the estate.

Guardianship and Conservatorship
Sometimes it becomes necessary to ask the court to grant you the authority to help a loved one – including adults and minors – when they cannot safely take care of themselves. This means being able to enroll a minor in school, make medical appointments and medical decisions, pay a person’s bills, help them buy groceries, and to basically make sure they are taken care of when they can’t take care of themselves. This is done through legal proceedings called a Guardianship or a Conservatorship; depending on what kind of help the loved one needs.
