Estates and Probate

While it is true that you “can’t take it with you”, it is also true that you should not leave a mess behind you after you die. A properly developed estate plan considers everything from inheritances, finances, and taxes to healthcare decisions. Estate plans consist of a set of legal documents tailored to protect you, your loved ones, and your assets. An estate plan may include your Will, Trusts, Health Care Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, and Durable (Financial) Powers of Attorney, as well as the retitling of your assets.

Belser Law Firm has experience drafting Wills, Trusts, and Powers of Attorney that address the specific needs and goals of our clients. We will do our best to put you at ease, make your wishes known, help avoid probate, protect you if you are unable to make decisions for yourself, and give you and your family peace of mind. If a loved one passes away, and you have to go through probate, we realize it can be a stressful and confusing experience.

Belser Law Firm can help you navigate the probate process to minimize the stress on you and your family. We also assist with guardianships and conservatorships for those without an estate plan.

Representative matters include:

  • Estate Planning – Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney
  • Probate and Trust Administration
  • Probate Litigation
We look forward to discussing your estate planning and probate matters. Please contact us or call 803.929.0096.
