Estate Disputes

When serious issues arise in family relationships, estate disputes may sometimes occur. These disputes can concern issues like elder abuse, unfair treatment in a will, or family estrangement. Since these disputes often go to the root of what most people hold dear, sometimes offering an unbiased opinion about these situations can be hard. That’s why hiring an estate lawyer with experience in court as well as alternative dispute resolution proceedings is an important step to take in finding a fair conclusion for all involved.

Estate Administration

Estate administration is a time-consuming and detail-oriented process. It can seem overwhelming. That’s why hiring an estate administration lawyer can help you handle your estate properly. An estate administration lawyer is experienced in estate asset distribution and resolving conflicts with beneficiaries. Furthermore, estate administrators and executors are expected to act ethically and meet all legal deadlines. A lawyer’s help can ensure legal protection if you are accused of making inappropriate decisions while acting as estate administrator.

Estate Planning

When it comes to organizing your affairs, consider hiring an estate planning lawyer. Estate planning is the process of dividing up and distributing your assets as you see fit for your beneficiaries. Proper planning deals with end-of-life issues and medical care decisions, paying close attention to financial matters and avoiding a probate burden for your loved ones. This process also allows your beneficiaries to avoid unnecessary family conflict due to an unresolved issue with your finances and estate. An estate lawyer can help you create the tools to avoid these conflicts by drafting wills, helping you appoint a power of attorney, and more.
