Whether a loved one passes away with, or without a Will, our team is here to help with the probate of the decedent's estate ensuring debts are paid, and assets are identified and distributed to the beneficiaries or heirs. Where applicable, when a full administration isn’t necessary, we can assist with Muniment of Title or alternatives to probate. We are also here to assist beneficiaries when they are faced with a situation where an executor, administrator or trustee is overreaching or misappropriating funds.
When a loved one becomes incapacitated and unable to handle their personal and/or financial affairs, and when Powers of Attorney are not in place or when the need for community administration arises, our experience with the guardianship process assists family members and loved ones in obtaining guardianship utilizing the least restrictive alternatives available; meeting the annual reporting and accounting requirements; and ensuring our clients remain in full compliance with the law and their duties.
We are proud to assist our clients with the negotiation and completion of real estate transactions. We also assist in clearing title to real property, whether through probate or probate alternatives. We take special care in the preparation of real estate documents, including liens, deeds, affidavits, easements, etc. We are also here to assist with oil and gas title and conveyancing issues.
Owning real property in concert with others can be cumbersome and frustrating. At times, this situation is unavoidable, such as after the death of a loved one. We are here to assist when the time comes to partition interests in real property, whether by agreement or through the courts.
