Probate and Estate Administration

Probate and estate administration is the process of settling an estate after a person dies. It does not have to be an intimidating and confusing process. The experienced lawyers of Pope and Pope can help you process the details of your probate proceedings professionally and with the utmost care.

We offer a comprhensive array of services from pre-administrative consultation through final accounting and closing of the estate.

Estate Planning

It is generally understood, however, that it is best to avoid probate, but few people understand why. Essentially there are two reasons you may want to avoid probate:

  1. It can delay the transfer of property and other valueable assets to your beneficiaries for months and sometimes even years
  2. It can be expensive, both attorney and court fees can reduce an estate's value
