Probate and Estate Law

What is it?

Planning for the future is not just a smart thing to do – it is essential. Preparing an estate plan will protect your heirs’ financial interests, ideally preventing disputes over the family property after you pass.

If you do pass without a will, the State of Massachusetts initiates a process known as probate, which refers to the management and distribution of assets according to Massachusetts law.
