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.

The probate process can be a daunting journey, filled with legal nuances that require thorough understanding and meticulous attention to detail. In Racine, WI, our probate attorneys stand ready to guide you through each step, ensuring your loved one's estate is settled according to their wishes and in compliance with Wisconsin law.

Is a Probate Attorney Necessary in Wisconsin?

The question often arises: is it necessary to have a probate attorney in Wisconsin? While a probate lawyer is not mandated by law, navigating probate without a knowledgeable attorney can be challenging. Probate laws in Wisconsin are intricate, and the process involves critical steps that must be executed correctly to avoid complications. A probate attorney serves as a crucial navigator through this process, providing experience in:

  • Preparing and filing required documents with the probate court.
  • Assisting with the distribution of the estate's assets.
  • Helping resolve any disputes that arise.
  • Advising on estate and inheritance tax matters.
  • Helping family members avoid probate.

Comprehensive Estate and Probate Services

Our lawyers offer a broad range of services tailored to meet the unique needs of each family, including:

  • Will Preparation: Drafting clear, legally sound wills that reflect your wishes.
  • Powers of Attorney: Establishing legal authority for someone to act on your behalf in financial and health care decisions.
  • Trusts: Creating revocable or irrevocable trusts to manage your assets now and in the future.
  • Guardianship and Conservatorship Orders: Ensuring your loved ones are cared for according to your wishes.

The Story of Estate Administration in Wisconsin

A local family faced the task of administering an estate that included a full estate plan, a wide array of assets, and complex family dynamics. Despite the potential for conflict and the challenge of navigating Wisconsin's probate laws, our attorneys facilitated a smooth process, emphasizing efficient and responsive service. From a simple Summary Administration to handling estates requiring an estate tax return, the team's dedication to personalizing the experience made a significant difference. This story exemplifies how tailored legal guidance can transform a potentially difficult situation into a manageable and positive outcome.

Benefits of a Comprehensive Law Firm 

Our team of lawyers and paralegals have extensive experience handling the nuances of your legal matter but also consider how other areas of law might affect your case. We often consider angles that aren’t obvious to an attorney with experience in only one practice area. 

A Law Firm that Handles Simple and Complex Cases 

Some legal issues are quick, requiring fast efficient services. You want those knocked out fast with the most efficient cost possible. But, for more involved cases, we take the time to get it right and work hard to get the outcome you want. 

A Team That Collaborates on Your Case 

We’ve had many legal clients complain that their last firm just didn’t have the resources or understanding to manage their case. Our attorneys regularly communicate across the firm, getting input from several legal professionals without the additional cost. 

Our Skills and Services 

Our skills and experience span decades and many different practice areas. We truly want to provide a comprehensive legal solution for our community. When you’ve got a legal question, we want to be the first law firm you think of because you know you can trust us to have the answers or tell you the next best solution. 

Open Communication 

No one wants to be sitting in the dark, unsure of what’s going on with their case. Part of our core practice model is to regularly update our clients on the status of their cases. 

Relationships Built on Trust and Communication 

Dealing with legal issues can be stressful. You don’t need added stress from an attorney who is slow to communicate and hasn’t given you a clear plan to resolve your case. Trust comes from knowing your attorney has your back and best interests in mind. 

Competitive Fees with Excellent Service 

We are not a free legal aid firm. We pride ourselves on offering top-tier service at a competitive local price. Legal solutions cost money but putting them off only leads to more headaches and financial problems.  

The role of a probate attorney in Racine, WI, cannot be understated. With the aim of providing peace of mind and ensuring that your estate planning and probate needs are met with professionalism and empathy, our team is dedicated to serving families with integrity and respect. Contact us to learn how we can assist you and your family in avoiding probate and making this critical process as seamless and stress-free as possible.
