Providing The Peace Of Mind You Need
A will is a legal document that plans for the distribution of your assets and property after you die. A properly drafted will can be a source of great assurance to you and your loved ones. Many people try to prepare their own will. Generally speaking, this is not a good idea, as a valid will must include a number of legal formalities. If these formalities are not observed, a will is invalid. An invalid will can lead to uncertainty, disagreements and extra costs for your loved ones.
At Michael W. Ferrell Attorney at Law, I can help you with your will and probate issues, including:
- Preparation of Wills and Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Living Wills and Advance Directives
- Probate of Wills and administration of estates where there is no Will, starting at $2,000
- Estate litigation – including the securing of rights of the surviving spouse, Will construction cases and Will contests
Attending To Every Detail Of Your Will
An experienced attorney can be of great value in properly drafting and preparing a will so that your intentions are known and your wishes are carried out after your death. I am Michael W. Ferrell. I have practiced law for more than 40 years, and I offer experienced, committed representation in preparing wills and assisting personal representatives in implementing them through the probate process.
To be given effect, a will must be submitted to probate court. Probate is the legal process of wrapping up the estate of a person who has died. The probate court will ensure creditors and taxes are paid and heirs and beneficiaries inherit what they are entitled to.
Maximizing Affordability While Minimizing Stress
Probate can be an emotional, time-consuming and expensive process, especially if the decedent did not have a valid will, or had a poorly drafted will that is difficult to interpret. I guide executors and personal representatives step by step through the probate process, helping them navigate the difficult decisions that are often required. You can rely on my experience to simplify this process and make it more cost-effective – and less stressful – for everyone involved.
