When an individual dies without a will, the state assumes responsibility for administering his or her estate. Dying without a will is known as dying “intestate.” Family members may have limited power in determining how the estate is distributed. For small estates, this may not present many legal challenges. However, for high-value estates, it is advisable to contact our experienced probate law practice and speak to a probate attorney about possible legal options.
Our probate law practice is efficient. Often, we can actually make the probate process be completed sooner than many other law firms. If you would like to know more about what occurs in probate court or how long your case will take, we can review your situation.
