Probate most generally describes the legal process by which the assets of a deceased person are distributed. A probate proceeding may be needed depending on the value and nature of estate assets. We help families determine whether probate is needed and guide them through the necessary procedures.

We most often assist the personal representative (or “executor”) in administering a deceased person’s estate according to his or her will or trust, or the intestacy laws of Colorado. This involves many considerations, including whether a will or trust exists, ages of beneficiaries, estate taxes, income taxes, creditor claims, legal notices, and timing of distributions. It can be a complicated process, and it is important that you have experienced attorneys assisting you. We handle the paperwork to have the personal representative appointed, guide the personal representative through the proceeding, and advise the personal representative through full administration of the estate.

You will receive personal attention from our attorneys as we guide you through this process. After an initial consultation, we can provide you with an estimate of attorney fees.
