What is a Succession?

Sometimes known as probate, a succession is the process through which the deceased individual's estate and/or will is evaluated and the property distributed accordingly. While these may be simple and straightforward cases, they can become extremely complicated matters.

Our firm can help clients understand issues pertaining to an individual who has died with a will (called "testate") or an individual who has died without a will or had a will declared invalid by the court (called "intestate") and how these situations are handled.

We will provide you with confidence and assurance after the death of a family member. If your loved one had a valid will, we can take care of the estate administration so that you do not need to worry. While a succession can be complex, it is often much less expensive than people expect. If you need legal counsel regarding a contested probate matter, we have the litigation experience to protect your interests.
