There is something very unique about probate administration law practice. It’s because of the nature of the work. You’re dealing with people making plans for their passing, or assisting families in straightening out the situation created by the death of a family member.

This work can become as much therapy to help through the grieving process. Or providing practical wisdom to deal with exactly how you’d want your wishes manifested upon your death.

The point I’m making is that this whole dimension is very personal, although certainly involving legal matters, instruments and the legal system. As such, these series of personal office notes blogs have been designed to let you know that we know that feeling good about the office you’re using for those delicate matters is critical.

That’s why we encourage you to use the site. Watch the home-made video; read some testimonials, read about wills, trusts and our thoughts on probate areas. Educating yourself is vital in making a good decision. These blog entrees are designed to let you know we can identify, we’ve been there ourselves, and we desire to be the one you feel comfortable with.

Yesterday there was discussion with a client about a trust, or whether something simpler could be used. Husband was concerned that, upon death, wife would have assets but be too unsophisticated, and in a reduced capacity, to handle them.

The answer was provided by the excellence of character and intelligence of their daughter. By making her the mother’s power of attorney, if father dies, and mother needs help, daughter will be able to act on her behalf.

Geting fancy instruments drafted isn’t always necessary.

The office is making outreach to various groups, client bases and organizations to make our probate administration services available on a broad scale.

My own CPA has agreed to pass on a notice posted in the Lawyer’s Weekly Newspaper highlighting our connections in probate work. He is shocked so many people that he does taxes for don’t even have a will. Satisfied clients who live in mobile home parks are networking information to encourage the people there to make plans for their future, and know for certain someone is there if there be a death, and probating an estate necessary. ¬†Friends who have posts in unions are arranging to have this office provide probate administration assistance to all union members, with free seminars, question and answer sessions, and other considerations for all union members using the office for probate matters.

If you get this post, or go on the site and read it, consider how the office can do something similar for you, or groups you represent.

People don’t know that ignoring something doesn’t make it go away.

A family may have had parents, who die, leaving siblings. Now one wants to sell the house, get some money. Did you know you’re going to have to probate two estates to unblock the chain of title to make the property ready for sale?

Or maybe you’re the brother who has a 25% interest, and the one with 75% doesn’t want to sell.

You cannot be too prepared; although many are too anxious and worried. The antidote is make arrangements, go forward, and have a law office be here who can safely see you through.

That’s why I’m concentrating in the field of probate administration.
