Probate & Post-death Adminsitration

Probate is a court-supervised process to determine the validity of a person’s will and to transfer assets as directed by the will or by intestate succession. Wisconsin employs both formal and informal probate processes. Our attorneys counsel clients in informal, formal, and special administration probate proceedings. They also assist clients in coordinating the collection of assets, paying a decedent’s final expenses, and giving advice on retirement plan distributions.
