Experienced Probate Representation

Probate is a court-supervised process involving the verification of will or trust. It also concerns resolving the deceased person’s debts, distributing of estate assets, and resolving will contests and disputes. If no will exists, probate may be necessary to ensure the distribution of estate assets complies with the Arkansas probate guidelines.

Our lawyers routinely create wills and trusts for our Fort Smith clientele, and this helps us in understanding our client’s needs. We provide administrative oversight concerning the probating of the will. Our litigation experience allows us to effectively resolve will disputes.
