Estate Attorney

An estate attorney is a legal professional who specializes in assisting clients with their Estate Plan and Probate.

Estate attorneys help clients create legal documents such as Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, and Advance Directives.

Together, these documents form an end-of-life plan that help guides medical decisions and the transfer of a deceased person's assets after death to Heirs and Beneficiaries.

Along with Estate Accountants, they may also provide advice on Estate Tax planning to help minimize the impact of taxes on a deceased person's assets.

After a death, an estate attorney can also help an Executor through the Probate process while Settling the Estate.

They can help manage estate taxes, distributing assets, and represent clients in Probate Court during a typical estate Administration, or more deeply if there happen to be legal disputes, such as conflict between beneficiaries.
