It can be an extremely complex process—more than just ensuring that the property in the estate is distributed according to the terms of the Will. You want a knowledgeable and experienced attorney to guide you through the process. If you make a mistake, you may not be able to correct it and you may be liable for it so the best advice is to get the assistance of a competent probate attorney.
