Probate of a Decedent’s Estate
The death of a loved one is a challenging time for everyone involved. We try to make it easier by helping you navigate the administration of the decedent’s estate. If the decedent died with or without a will, we can represent you as the personal representative in probate court or give you guidance on your rights as an heir or beneficiary.
You just found out that you are the successor trustee of your parent’s trust. What do you do now? While administration of a trust is often straightforward, sometimes a trustee needs an attorney’s counsel to fulfill their legal responsibilities. Our law firm can represent you as trustee or beneficiary of a trust and provide guidance during the process of trust administration.
“Mr. Allred was great to work with, conscientious, detail oriented, and very easy to get along with. I have already referred 2 friends to him.”
“…Steve conducts business with the utmost integrity and I have recommended him to several friends. Should I [again] need legal counsel in the future, he will be the first attorney I turn to.”
“Stephen did a wonderful job of preparing and informing us of all options for our estate plan, trust, and medical directive. He explained things to us in layman’s terms, and made suggestions, which were very helpful. He made it more simple and easy to understand, and was always available for any questions that might come up…. I would highly recommend him to any of our friends.
