Transferring assets is much simpler if there is a will, which is why we encourage our clients to have a comprehensive action plan that includes wills, trusts and other documents. Having this in place allows individuals and families to have certainty about their estate. Without a will, the state will do its best to make fair and prudent decisions about how to distribute assets.

Avoiding Probate Through Trusts

When possible, it is beneficial to avoid the probate process due to its complexity, length, publicity and expense. One of the best ways to avoid probate is to place assets into trusts, which direct assets to a beneficiary of your choice. For more information, see our trusts page.

Estate Litigation And Will Contests

As an estate goes through probate it is not uncommon for disagreements to arise amongst parties such as beneficiaries, executors and creditors.
