Navigating Wills, Estates, Trusts, Attorneys, Probate and Real Estate

What is the timeline for probate and/or estate settlement?

How much should an attorney charge when settling an estate?  

Is the valuation for a property in probate different the the typical market analysis given by my Real Estate Agent? Why does that matter?

How do I keep my tax exposure under control when settling an estate for my parent?

What can I expect as an executor of my parent(s) estate. What are the  fiduciary duties I am responsible for?

Is a Will enough?  Should I have a Trust?

Should I title my property as a Transfer on Death or place it in a trust for my children?

We can help you navigate the process and get the answers you need from the experts. Much like your General Practitioner and the Specialists in the medical field - we team up to help you!

Let my Team of Experts get you on the right path for you!
