What is Probate?

Probate can be an extremely frustrating and time-consuming process. At NM Law, APC, we pride ourselves in taking away the pain and stress of this challenge from our clients, at what is already a difficult time. We will make sure that your loved one’s possessions are distributed in the most efficient and stress-free manner possible, while keeping the family and executor updated along the way.
How to Avoid Probate with an Estate Plan
Many people do not know that passing assets to loved ones by relying on a Will is not an efficient or a fast way to handle your affairs. A Will has to be probated, which means it has to go through a mandatory court process which is costly and slow. Furthermore, all information pertaining to the decedent’s assets and the beneficiaries receiving assets can be accessed by anyone as it is a matter of public record. By comparison, a Trust Administration is a private process which provides the trustee immediate access to the trust assets and trust management.

We proudly represent the entire spectrum of clients from wealthy families analyzing the estate tax planning options that best suit their family and asset structure, to a new family purchasing a first home.
