Wills & Probate

Since you are researching this topic, chances are you’re going through one of the most difficult and stressful times in your life and you are ready to get your life back. I am here to help you remove the ‘drama’ from your life, whether you’re beginning your Will planning or trying to understand what your next steps are after your loved one dies or you have been named in the Will as a beneficiary, or as the executor or trustee, or if there was no Will, and how to probate your loved one’s estate. I will guide you through the maze of options in Will planning and the Probate process.

Compassion
I began my practice in the family and probate courts with the desire to help others through times of family crisis. I am compassionate and I strive to educate clients about Will planning and the probate process and I continue to closely communicate with clients all along the way. Being informed starts to dissolve the ‘drama’.

Advocacy
I pride myself on my ability to work with clients and identify their needs and goals and then achieving the best result for the client through zealous advocacy, both in and out of the courtroom. Trained in courtroom litigation, I am well-equipped to advocate your side of the case to the Judge and/or a Jury with the passion each client deserves. Probate courts are full of relatives and purported relatives, often based on strangers to the rest of the decedent’s family claiming to be the common law spouse of the decedent or a newly married spouse of the decedent. The actual relatives often need a strong attorney to clear the smoke and mirrors from such fraudulent claims in probate matters and I am the ‘wright’ attorney for you.
