Probate refers to the court proceeding required by law to formalize the transfer of property and assets belonging to the deceased person. Simply put, probate is the process required to change the title of property from the deceased person to the person entitled to receive that asset. We represent those who are entitled to receive such assets, who need help navigating the probate process.
