What a Probate Attorney Does

A probate attorney is a legal professional who can provide counsel and court representation in matters regarding estate administration. In other words, an estate probate attorney facilitates the administration of a deceased person's assets and belongings. While a last will and testament can provide instructions on how the deceased would like their wishes to be carried out, property disputes and claims from third parties may hold up the process. On top of that, other parties, such as creditors, may dispute claims.

These scenarios may escalate into court action, where a judge may arbitrate how the estate should be administered. Or, in the event that a last will and testament have not been submitted, such proceedings are necessary to settle any outstanding claims. In either of these cases, it helps to have an experienced probate attorney on your side.
