Additionally, we provide representation and consultation to Executors and Administrators in Probate Court and can help you navigate and understand your rights and responsibilities in the administration of your loved one’s estate.

Sometimes it is necessary to seek guardianship of a child or adult to ensure their physical or financial safety. Guardianship is a process whereby the court appoints a guardian to provide protection for an individual who cannot independently manage their financial and/or physical needs. Our attorneys can help you understand what to expect, and how to prepare for, a guardianship proceeding.
