Tacoma Probate Attorney

Professional Legal Guidance Throughout the Probate Process

According to Washington State law, if you or a deceased loved one has real estate or assets worth more than $100,000 a probate is necessary. At our firm, we strive to reduce stress for our client and his or her family members after the death of a loved one. We work hard to administer the estate in order to help our clients avoid additional work and in order to reduce personal liability for the estate's personal representative.

A probate attorney from our firm does the following:

  • Educates our clients on the legal process after a loved one has passed
  • Files all appropriate documents with the court in a timely manner
  • Guides clients through the probate process
  • Gathers all information about the estate's assets and debts
  • Notifies heirs, creditors, etc. of the death and probate
  • Arranges tax services and pay-offs for the estate
  • Pays creditors with assets from the estate
  • Sells assets when and if necessary
  • Serves as a mediator if disputes arise between people named as heirs in the estate
