Probate and Administration

These are the types of cases commenced in court after a person dies with property that must be disposed of or distributed.

Powers of Attorney

A power of attorney is a delegation of authority. An individual (the principal) directs that another (the agent) has the authority to conduct various business endeavors on his behalf.


In the event that an individual has not executed a power of attorney, and she has reached the point of incapacity that she cannot conduct business for herself, a loved one may commence a guardianship in court to have the loved one declared the incapacitated person's guardian


A trust is a document whereby an individual (grantor) transfers some sort of real or personal property to another (trustee) to hold and manage for the benefit of a third person (beneficiary).


A will is a document that provides for the distribution of one's (decedent's) property after her death.
