Estate Planning & Probate

Independence, Missouri, Estate Planning And Probate Lawyer

Most of the people who come to my law office need help with an issue that is very personal to them. They may be concerned about the effect of taxes on their estate. Some want to be sure that their interests as beneficiaries are protected in the probate process. Others are concerned about the ability of a beneficiary to manage their future inheritance.

At Grubb Law Firm, P.C., in Independence, Missouri, I offer a free initial consultation to discuss your concerns and offer solutions. The following pages provide more information about the estate planning and probate services I provide:

  • Estate planning: An estate plan requires the coordination of life-time giving and testamentary planning to accomplish your goals.
  • Wills and trusts: You can create your estate plan using a will or a trust. The option that is best for you depends on your age, your assets, your tax concerns and your goals. As your lawyer, I will give you the information you need to make good decisions.
  • Probate and estate administration: When a person dies, the assets in the estate must be collected and managed. Debts and taxes must be paid, and the balance of the estate distributed to those who are entitled to receive it. Mistakes can be costly, so it's important to have an experienced attorney guide you.
  • Probate and estate litigation: I represent personal representatives, heirs and beneficiaries in will contests and other types of probate litigation.
