The Probate Process

Most personal representatives have rarely if ever probated a will and know little about the process. I can guide you through the complex probate process, including:

  • Filing the will with the Minnesota probate court
  • Developing the best strategy for fairly and expeditiously probating the estate
  • Finding and collecting assets
  • Closing and opening bank accounts
  • Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
  • Paying estate taxes
  • Valuing, managing, preserving and liquidating the estate
  • Locating beneficiaries
  • Hiring experts, when appropriate

Probate Disputes

Even in apparently straightforward estate cases, there are sometimes disputes between beneficiaries. My professional presence can calm the emotionally-charged process of probating a challenged will or disputed executor or judicial decision. When it is in the best interests of my clients to preserve cordial familial relationships, I am adept at mediating these disputes. When necessary, I assertively defend my client's beneficiary rights within the Minnesota probate court.
