Probate law and practice can run from simple and straightforward to confusing and complex, depending on the individual and the family’s situation. Much of this relates to how much estate planning was done by the deceased while alive. Probate attorneys assist in assuring probate is as smooth a process as possible. They can also assist with tax issues, retitling of assets, and requesting court permission for various actions.
