This encounter solidified who I am as an attorney and how I treat my clients.

I seek to provide each and every one of my clients with the highest quality of advocacy and support I can offer.

Do You Need the Help of a Probate Attorney?

Yes. In most cases, settling probate matters properly requires experience and careful attention to detail. This usually includes meeting deadlines, filing documentation, and following the many specific probate procedures that must be completed.

Common Probate Challenges I Guide Clients Through

Contested
Wills & Trusts

When one or more beneficiaries believe the will does not meet legal standards, feel entitled to more than they have inherited, or question the creditors' claims against the estate, you need a trusted attorney. I can investigate the claims against the will and provide representation in such cases.

Probate & Estate Litigation

Sadly, disputes over estates such as suspicion of elder abuse, will contests, and probate administration often occur after a loved one dies. In these situations, it is important to have legal guidance not only because claims like these are confusing by nature, but also to seek to preserve family relationships. 

Probate & Estate Mediation

An estate dispute like an elder abuse claim or will contest can negatively impact family relationships. Mediating an estate dispute can help prevent damage that could be irreversible. By helping families focus on the intent of their loved one's wishes, I can help relieve conflict and find a solution.
