An elder law attorney represents seniors and their families in a variety of legal issues including estate planning, medical, financial and social needs to assist with providing the highest quality of life for seniors.

Probate is the legal process through which a deceased person's estate is properly distributed to heirs and designated beneficiaries and any debt owed to creditors is paid off.

Wills are the most commonly used estate planning tool.  While a Will may fit some situations it may not be the best option available. If you pass away with or without a Will, your estate must go through Probate.

There are various types of trusts available for your estate planning tool box.  Learn which Trust works best for your situation.
