What do probate attorneys do?

Probate attorneys help people settle the estate of a deceased person.

Settling an estate of a deceased person includes finding heirs, distributing the estate assets, paying debts and taxes, and resolving legal disputes. The probate process can be complex, time-consuming, and risky if done alone, which is why an executor of a will or estate will often retain an attorney to help with the probate.

Most probate attorneys also offer estate planning and can help you create a will or trust to avoid probate, and if you already have a will or trust, an attorney can help you ensure it is valid and up to date.

No matter your probate or estate planning needs, a probate administration attorney can help you navigate the process and protect your interests.
