Probate Administration

One may avoid these problems with proper estate planning. We provide a full range of estate planning including the preparation of wills and trusts.

Even if you do not have a large estate, you should have a will. An attorney can draft your will or trust and advise all tax and probate matters affordably. The disadvantages of dying without a will or proper estate planning are significant.

In many cases, Missouri and Illinois law require that the estate of a decedent go through the probate process before a decedent's assets can be transferred to those designated in their will or those entitled to a distribution by law. This process requires the drafting and submission of multiple documents and exhibits to the Probate Court.
