Probate

Probate can be a complex process for individuals to deal with following the death of a loved one. This is a process through which the validity of a deceased individual's will is determined. However, the absence of a will is also dealt with through probate. Throughout probate, the court supervised transfer of the title of an asset is completed, as well as the transfer of property from the decedent to the beneficiaries as stated in the will, or dictated by state statutes. Attorney David Easterling strives to reach an efficient and effective resolution to your probate matter while explaining each step of the process.

Estate Administration

Administering the estate of a deceased individual falls on the individual named in the estate documents. However, attorney David Easterling's experience with estate administration is an asset to executors, as he explains the process of probate, working to gather the assets of the estate, pay the debts and taxes and seeing to it that all the necessary documents are filed in a timely manner. This permits the property of the estate to be distributed as quickly as possible to the beneficiaries of the estate.
