About Probate Law

The death of a loved one is an extremely difficult time as families face the emotions of their loss and the need to make decisions about the transfer of assets. The probate lawyers with McCarty Law are here to help by alleviating your anxieties and taking the stress out of the estate settlement process. Our experienced attorneys and paralegals advise clients on the probate process step by step. We provide a wide range of services with regard to both probate — the court proceeding used to transfer assets in accordance with an individual’s estate plan — and non-probate transfers.

Turn to us to answer any legal questions about living trusts. We’ll help you file all of the necessary paperwork and claim forms with retirement administrators, life insurance companies and register of deeds offices in order to ensure the smooth transfer of assets.

Our team understands that the death of a loved one is a time to grieve rather than a time to deal with complicated financial and legal matters. We’re here to help you simplify the estate settlement process and provide the tools necessary to ease the transition of asset ownership from one person to another.
