Too often than not, settling an estate ends up in litigation and family turmoil as involved parties find it difficult to come to an agreement. Without experienced legal counsel by your side, this can become an extremely messy process that could result in permanently severed family ties. We understand how stressful of a time this can be, especially when tensions are running high, which is why we have gathered a few advantages of having legal counsel with you during the settlement and litigation phases:

  • Without experienced legal counsel by your side, the probate process can become extremely stressful and noticeably longer. With our legal guidance, you can rest assured that you will be taking the most cost-effective approach that will result in favorable outcomes.
  • Many individuals become overwhelmed when it comes to settling taxes for a loved one that has passed. We work hand in hand with our clients’ CPA or tax advisor to ensure that everything is worked out as necessary. In doing so, we will prepare both state and federal tax returns for the estate and inheritance.
  • Additionally, we will ensure that the tax aspects have been settled and remediate any disputes that may arise as a result. In the event that the tax settlement is being disputed, we are experienced in negotiating a resolution that will please all involved parties.
