What Is Probate? Do I Need To Hire A Lawyer?

A probate law attorney helps deal with issues that arise when a family member or loved one dies. Probate is the area of law that deals with distributing assets and paying the creditors of a person who is deceased. An executor is named in the will (or a personal representative is appointed by the court if there is no will) to perform the duties of estate administration.

The handling of a probate estate can be quite difficult, with multiple statutory requirements and complex tasks. Warren attorney James Warr can guide you through the duties that need to be addressed, including:

  • Opening the estate
  • Gathering assets and documents
  • Valuing and selling assets
  • Real estate transactions and transfers
  • Paying debts and taxes
  • Distributing assets to heirs
  • Accounting and reporting requirements

James Warr has wide experience with estate administration, including probating complex estates in Dearborn, Plymouth, Grosse Pointe, Grosse Pointe Park, Canton and other affluent communities. He provides efficient and cost-effective counsel, whether you need legal advice for a specific issue or full-service handling of the entire estate.

Estate administration does not always go smoothly. The validity of the will may be challenged on the basis of the deceased's mental capacity or a relative's undue influence. Missing assets may need to be traced and recovered. The executor or personal representative may be accused of manipulating the probate process for his or her personal gain.

James Warr is an experienced trial lawyer who can represent any party in probate litigation. He will help the parties explore out-of-court resolutions or represent clients in taking their dispute to trial.

Estate Planning Is Essential

Without a will, your assets would be divided according to the Michigan laws of succession. Your family members may fall into disagreements. Estate planning attorney James Warr can help you create or update your will to clearly state your wishes regarding who will inherit what when you die and who will manage your personal affairs should you become incapacitated. He will carefully draft a will, powers of attorney, a living will and related documents, individualized to your desires and family dynamics.
