Probate Attorney

Back to Practice Areas

Probate is the legal process of administering a person’s estate after they pass away. If there is a will, probate involves establishing that it is a valid document. But without a will or trust in place, the probate process will decide the distribution of assets, which can take up a lot of time and diminish the estate. Probate without estate planning means grieving family members are going to court to attempt to obtain ownership of property and assets.

Cunningham Law is expert at structuring estates to avoid probate. Failing that, we have significant experience successfully navigating the probate process.
