“Most Probated Estates can be straight forward for an experienced attorney and does not need to cost the Estate much money. Problems in the process translate to more attorney fees for the Estate. Avoiding problems is obviously a money saver. My job is to help clients avoid problems where they can and help resolve problems when they cannot be avoided.”
