So, who needs a probate attorney?
By far, the most common reason to consult with a good estate planning attorney who specializes in probate is if you think you have been appointed the executor of a will and/or administrator of an estate.
The reason is that if the estate needs to go through probate, the executor will need to talk to a probate expert – an experienced probate attorney. Some of the issues to discuss include:
I would advise at least talking with a probate attorney before beginning to probate an estate. Yes, you technically could do it all yourself. And, in fact, you might decide to do that. But, at least talk with a probate professional first – at least to see if there are any issues you should know about (that you don’t already).
