Our Philosophy: Law, Simplified

Probate Estates

We understand that the death of a loved one is a difficult and uncertain time.  In addition to grieving, those left behind are trying to figure out difficult issues such as "do I have to open an estate," "how much will this cost," and "am I personally liable for my spouse's debts?"  At our first meeting, we will discuss topics such as whether you need a probate estate, what kind your will need and our fees.  

As part of our ongoing commitment to client satisfaction, we will periodically send out surveys to make sure you are happy with our firm.


The inability of a loved one to care for themselves can be very stressful on family and friends. There are questions like "can I get power of attorney over my mom or dad," "do I need a guardianship" and "how can I help when I am so far away?"  Attorney Stinson has extensive experience in guardianship and will guide you through your questions.  We will discuss whether guardianship is appropriate, whether there are any alternatives and the costs and fees associated with guardianships.  

As with probate estates, we will periodically send out client satisfaction surveys to ensure your satisfaction with our firm.
