Probate And Estate Administration

Have you been placed in charge of a deceased loved one's estate? You do not have to handle these matters on your own. The processes involved in probate and estate administration can be complex, and you can benefit from the assistance of one of our Belleville probate lawyers. Whether your loved one died with or without a will, we will help you navigate all aspects of the process, from identifying beneficiaries to conducting an inventory of assets to seeing that all of your loved one's property is placed in the appropriate hands.

If a dispute arises over the disposition of an estate or any assets within an estate, we can represent you in a will contest and other forms of estate litigation.

Elder Law

Elder law is an area of law that essentially encompasses all of the legal needs of the elderly. We can assist people in obtaining guardianship of an elderly loved one. We can provide guidance on nursing home liability and residents' rights, taking action against nursing home abuse or neglect. We also stand up for elderly people who have been victims of financial exploitation. Our attorneys represent the Department of Aging in elder abuse and neglect cases as well as the Southwest Visiting Nurses Association.
