Legal Guidance For Probate And Estate Administration
When a death occurs and family emotions are raw and property issues arise, you need an attorney who is willing to listen, assist you and give you proven advice. Probate is the process of transferring property from a deceased person, paying their bills and getting the property to the rightful heirs.
Sometimes will contests or other types of probate litigation arise. With an experienced lawyer to guide you, these complications can be addressed directly and efficiently. I am probate attorney George E. Pattison. I understand the local rules and regulations of the various probate courts, which vary from county to county, and can help you through this difficult time.
