In the emotional time following the death of someone close to you, it can be hard to navigate the intricacies of settling an estate. Probate Law ensures orderly estate administration.

Disputes often arise if the will divides the estate unevenly among siblings, when different versions of the will vary greatly, or if parties disagree over the choice of Executor.

If you serve as Executor, you will be reimbursed for all legitimate out-of-pocket expenses and you may be entitled to statutory fees.
