What Our Probate Attorneys Do For You?

Our extensive services provide you with efficient legal advice and legal representation on the vast processes of probate. Here are some of the specific services we provide:

  • Determining debt of the decedents, evaluating whether it is legitimate, and creating payment plans to ease burden of cos
  • Aiding in distribution of assets of decedents, according to will, as well as state inheritance and intestacy laws.
  • Drafting proper and fair wills and trusts of decedents.
  • Determining all possessions of decedents and their value, including financial accounts, personal possessions, and owned property.

How Does the Process Change With or Without a Will?

If a Will is present, the Law Offices of Erika E. Anderson are trained to follow a Will and to subject the Will to change when necessary. In some scenarios, a certain beneficiary of the Will may contest that the Will is not valid, that it was signed under severe stress, or that it was created under the control of another party involved.

Someone could want no involvement and desire to be removed from the will entirely. Regardless of the aspects of the will, you will be assigned a probate attorney who understands your situation and empathizes with you. They will act as a mediator between you and any opposing parties who wish to add changes to the will.

If no Will is present, then state inheritance and intestacy laws decide how the distribution of state assets will proceed. `

If you decide to completely renounce your role as administrator, which is more than acceptable, we will take over as administrator of the estate and do everything in our power to ensure assets are distributed fairly.
