Typically, however, it involves:
- Providing notice to creditors
- Determining the validity of a will and interpreting the provisions of a will
- Valuing the estate and the assets of the estate to determine if taxes apply
- Facilitating the transfer of money and property to new owners

If at all possible, we recommend avoiding the complex probate process. A trust is created to do just that. A trust protects your assets and transfers them to the determined beneficiaries.
The process is typically commenced upon the death or incapacity of the trust creator. The process involves the non-court monitored process of managing assets, and then transferring assets to the designated beneficiaries. While the process varies depending on the type of trust, you can rely on our experienced team to guide you through the process from start to finish.

A conservatorship is a legal guardianship over an adult. A conservatorship may be necessary when an individual is no longer able to care for themselves or avoid elder financial abuse. This typically happens when someone becomes incapacitated from old age, illness, or injury; and the person does not have a proper estate plan in place, appointing someone to care for them.
When there is no estate plan in place, and the person has lost the capacity to put one in place, a conservator may need to be appointed over the person and their estate. This requires extensive court involvement, and the help of a very experienced attorney. If you believe a loved one may be in need of having a Conservatorship put in place, contact The Law Office of Trevor D. Martin today. Our office will ensure your loved one receives the protection they need.
