Someone you love has just passed away. Perhaps you were named as their “executor” or “personal representative” in their will. Or maybe they didn’t have a will. You’re faced with a mountain of questions, paperwork, and uncertainty, and mostly all you want to do is grieve. We can help. We want to walk alongside you to help you navigate the legal and financial issues that arise following the death of your loved one.
You might be wondering: Who is responsible for paying his final expenses? How do we collect her life insurance money? What do we do with his retirement accounts? How do we divide her furniture, jewelry, or artwork? Do we need to retitle the house? How long will all of this take?
