Clarke, we provide services that not only strive for legal excellence, but also provide a level of genuine care for you, our client.

Another unique aspect of our firm is that we offer services in more than just one legal field. While our focus is in probate and estate administration law, our extensive experience allows us to provide representation for a wide range of civil matters. While every case is unique, the impact that a dedicated legal team can have is always equally significant.

Probate
Do you need help with probate and estate administration? Contact us today at 202-765-0109 to schedule an appointment with our Washington DC probate attorney .
When someone close to you passes away, their assets may enter into a process known as probate if they left behind a will or no estate plan at all. This is a process of court-managed estate administration where finances and assets are distributed and managed according to the state's laws of succession and the decedent's last will and testament.

Probating a will is the process of determining that the will is valid and carrying out the wishes of the estate owner contained in the document. Probate will involve steps such as accounting for the estate, paying outstanding debts and taxes and then proceeding to distribute the remainder of the estate according to the will. If there is no will left behind, the distribution of the remainder will take place according to the district's laws of succession.

Here are a few aspects of probate and estate administration that our legal team can assist you with:

Filing of a petition with the proper probate court
Notice to heirs under the will or to statutory heirs (if no will exists)
Petition to appoint executor (in the case of a will) or Administrator for the estate
Inventory and appraisal of estate assets by executor/administrator
Payment of estate debt to rightful creditors
Sale of estate assets
Payment of estate taxes, if applicable
Final distribution of assets to heirs
