The stress of losing a loved one is overwhelming. Dealing with the complex area of probate only compounds the stress. At the Law Office of Craig Patton we offer comprehensive, compassionate legal representation during this difficult time.
Probating a will is a court proceeding during which a will is confirmed as valid, debts are paid, and the assets of an estate are administered and distributed according to the provisions of the will.
Active Listener — Powerful Advocate
Every will is administered through probate. If there is no will, the law requires a determination of heirship proceeding, which is similar to a regular probate, but includes some extra procedures.
At the Law Office of Craig Patton, we provide you with the tools to guide you through probate. We draft the documents that must be filed with the probate court, and go before the probate court on your behalf, leaving you free to attend to your family.
Lawyer Craig Patton will explain your responsibilities, help you communicate with beneficiaries of the estate, guide you through the creditor process, and help you put together an inventory. In addition, attorney Craig Patton and his staff will offer guidance on any issue that arises in the process of closing the estate.
At the Law Office of Craig Patton, you can be assured of quality, professional representation, and a deep understanding and compassion for your loss.
