Estate Planning- After death you need a Last Will and testament (a Will) so you have someone you trust to carry out your last wishes. A Will is not valid until after death because of course you can change or revoke it at any time, as well as its purpose, is for after death. But a Will does not give anyone any authority before death. After-death planning documents include your Last Will and testament and sometimes Trust or other asset-specific documents including business needs.
Estate Disputes- If there is a dispute about the validity of a Will or the amount beneficiaries are receiving, etc, then we can help you too with our decades of successful experience. We encourage and support the use of mediation to resolve disputes especially when family or friends are involved but if there is no settlement then we can also help you ask the court to resolve the deadlock (litigation).
Probate Applications- Probate is the process of asking the court to approve a document as being the Last Will and Testament of a deceased person, and it requires an application to the Supreme Court. We can help with the probate and other estate administration needs.
