What Does a Probate Attorney Do?

The responsibilities of a probate attorney will depend on whether or not your loved one has a will. If there was a will, one of our probate attorneys can review it to ensure it was not written or signed under duress. Although there are many reasons why a will may be challenged, most of them go through probate without any major obstacles. A probate lawyer can also advise the executor of a will on numerous legal matters.

If your loved one passed without a will, that person will have died “intestate.” Under these circumstances, the estate will be distributed according to intestacy laws, regardless of what the decedent’s wishes might have been. A probate attorney can assist the administrator of an estate in this situation.

Below are some of the responsibilities of a probate attorney:

  • Collect and manage the proceeds of life insurance
  • Find and secure all of the deceased person’s assets
  • Have the decedent’s property appraised
  • Prepare and file documents required by probate court
  • Manage the estate’s checkbook
  • Determine if estate taxes are owed

We understand how overwhelming it is to cope with the loss of a loved one. You can rely on us to lessen some of your burdens.
