If you are an executor of an estate, you need a probate attorney. As a fast-growing probate and estate administration attorney, we can help you navigate court processes, payment of the deceased person's debts, distribution of property and assets according to the will or estate plan, and effectively direct or indirect probate litigation.
Estate planning involves the preparation of tasks that serve to manage an individual's asset base in the event of incapacitation or death which comprises the bequest of assets to heirs. Most estate plans are set up with the help of an attorney experienced in estate law, just like Hunter and Associates.
We are a team of experienced and licensed law professionals with a thorough understanding of the state and federal laws that affect how your estate will be inventoried, valued, dispersed, and taxed after your death. The first step in the legal process of administering a deceased person's estate is the receipt of probate. It is the probate court's role to validate and approve a person's will.
In addition to educating, you about the probate process, we can assist you with the following tasks:
Creating a will, designating your beneficiaries, establishing a durable power of attorney and medical durable power of attorney, finding ways to reduce and avoid estate tax when possible and for the benefit of your beneficiaries after your death.
If a beneficiary (or even an individual not designated as a beneficiary) announces that they plan to contest the will and sue the estate of a deceased family member or loved one that you also stand to benefit from, it might be in your best interest to consult an estate planning attorney immediately.
Our team is well trained and up to date in the Uniform Probate Code, which imposes rules and limits on wills and trusts.
