Competently navigating you through the probate process

Probate is the legal process that transfers the title of property from the estate of the person who has died and resolves any outstanding debts. Probate administration enables the goals and wishes of the deceased person to be achieved while satisfying the requirements of the state government and probate court.

The size of the estate may dictate the complexity of the probate process that Asquith & Mahoney, LLP will handle for you. We encourage our clients to be as involved as they desire in the daily administration of their loved ones' estates.

Although estates plans are made, difficulties may arise in dividing assets according to your loved one's wishes. When this happens, our experienced attorneys are skilled litigators and we provide aggressive representation on legal matters involving-

  • Will contests
  • Will and trust interpretation disputes
  • Property distribution
  • Surcharge claims involving executors, trustees, and guardians
  • Determining outstanding debt
  • Proving a valid will exists
  • Locating assets

We are ready to either initiate the probate process or defend you in estate planning litigation matters to protect your interests.
