Probate Law & Estate Planning

Benjamin Franklin said that nothing can be certain but death and taxes. Attorney Elgin deals with both. Everyone has an estate plan. If you have not taken the time to make yours, the state has a default plan for you that likely does not do exactly what you want it to do. The state’s default plan is structured for ease of administration, not for maximizing benefits to your heirs or minimizing tax burdens at death.

The loss of a loved one is stressful enough. Combine that with the process of winding up their affairs and distributing their assets and the process is a nightmare. Attorney Elgin assists families in navigating the probate process and closing out your loved one’s estate. The probate court has strict deadlines and forms for nearly everything — an experienced probate attorney can help you navigate the process and protect your rights.
