What A Probate Lawyer Does

What A Probate Lawyer Does

A probate attorney is a state-licensed lawyer who can assist the beneficiaries of an estate or the Executor of a Will (if one was appointed) while they strive to settle an estate by guiding them through the probate process. Their duties could often involve locating and cataloging the estate’s assets, comprehending and satisfying any debts the estate might owe, allocating and settling the estate, and more.
