We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

Learn how we service your area through our Remote Location Approach.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

About Probate Attorney in Kenosha WI:

Probate and Estate Administration in Kenosha, WI

Losing a loved one is hard enough without the added stress of probate and estate administration. Probate administration involves managing and settling the estate, often requiring the appointment of a personal representative to handle tasks such as inventorying assets, paying taxes and debts, and distributing assets to beneficiaries. Our Kenosha probate attorneys are here to help you through it all with compassion and ease.

What is Probate

Probate is the legal process of distributing the estate of a deceased person to heirs and beneficiaries and paying off debts to creditors. It can be complicated and time-consuming but doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Our services in Kenosha include:

  • Determining if informal or formal estate administration is required.
  • Identifying, collecting, and managing the deceased’s assets.
  • Protecting the rights of spouses and beneficiaries under Wisconsin law.
  • Selling assets and real estate as needed.
  • Paying debts, claims, taxes, and other probate expenses.
  • Distributing assets according to the will, trust, or Wisconsin law if there is no will or trust.
  • Assisting with probate estate and trust administration matters.

Estate Planning Made Easy

While probate focuses on the administration of an estate after death, creating proper estate plans can make the process much simpler. Our estate planning in Kenosha includes:

  • Preparation and Drafting of Estate Planning Documents: Creating well-documented wills, trusts, powers of attorney, medical directives, and guardianships to protect your assets and ensure they are distributed according to your wishes.

Elder law is also an important aspect of estate planning, providing comprehensive legal services to address end-of-life care, asset ownership, and other related matters.

Anecdote: The Johnson Estate

Consider the Johnson family whose patriarch passed away without a will. The family was in disarray, facing potential disputes and uncertainty about asset distribution. Our Kenosha probate lawyers stepped in to help the family through the probate process, opting for formal estate administration due to the complexity. Our law office specializes in managing complex probate cases, ensuring that all legal matters are handled efficiently. We managed the assets with precision and communicated clearly to ensure the estate was settled fairly, according to the family’s wishes, and avoiding conflict between family members.

If you are also in need of compassionate legal assistance, contact our law firm today for a consultation and to get in contact with one of our probate lawyers with extensive experience in protecting your family’s interests.
