The process of probate is necessary for a variety of reasons. The court has to review the deceased’s will in order to make sure it is valid. It is also the process that includes paying final debts and taxes and transferring property to the rightful heirs or beneficiaries. But not all estate assets are subject to probate. In hiring Russell, you can focus on grieving while he handles the legal side of things. He can also assist you with resolving distribution disputes or when conflict arises between trustees and beneficiaries.
