Persons with modest to multi-million dollar estates have relied upon the discretion and experience of Allison MacKenzie’s attorneys for probate matters for over 30 years. Probate is the process that transfers legal title of property from the estate of a person who has died. This means arranging for an estate to be passed on to designated beneficiaries at the time of death. The court process that oversees the distribution of an estate is called probate. If planned for and handled appropriately, it can be simple and efficient. Our attorneys assist with processing an estate efficiently and in a manner consistent with the law and expressed directive of the decedent. In particular, Allison MacKenzie’s attorneys can assist with:

  • Effective use of disclaimers
  • Administration of small estates
  • Probate “avoidance” techniques
  • Petition of probate of will
  • Appointment of personal respresentative
  • Issuance of Letter Testamentary
