Probate Administration -- Avoiding Complications and Confusion

Probate can be complicated when a person fails to leave behind a will. At Johnson & Johnson, our probate lawyers work with accountants in order to determine the value of a decedent's estate. We look at outstanding debts and how much creditors are allowed to claim. This is especially important in the case of credit cards and loans for things like cars or furniture. We asset the rights of heirs, challenging attempts on the part of creditors or others to assume trusteeship of an estate. In cases involving contested wills, we work with investigators, psychologists, and other experts when charges of undue influence or mental capacity arise.

We understand the importance of providing peace of mind for our clients. That's why our office only works with certified, bonded financial institutions in establishing a trust.
