Litigation and AppealsóOur firm represents and advises clients who are, or might become, involved in a lawsuit as a result of a dispute. Negotiations may result in prevention or a settlement.

Probate & Estate AdministrationóOur firm specializes in Probate and Estate Administration. Probate is the legal process by which a personís debts are paid and assets are distributed upon her or his death. Lawyers refer to the entity that owns the deceasedís assets until those assets are distributed as an "estate." Estate Administration includes the probate process as well as non-probate transfers of the deceasedís assets. Individual state laws direct the probate court how to distribute the deceasedís estate. State laws and procedures vary greatly, so, it is important to consult a firm with expertise in this area of the law to ensure that the deceasedís assets are distributed correctly.
