Helping You Settle An Estate In A Timely Fashion

When you turn to us for help with your probate matter, we will examine your loved one’s estate to determine whether it needs to be probated. In Minnesota, not all property or assets need to go through probate. If your loved one is listed as co-owner on a title or shared a bank account with another individual, neither needs to be probated. Other assets and property may be exempt, which is why it is critical to talk to us about your loved one’s estate.

You can rely on us to give you an honest assessment of your options. If probate is necessary, we will pursue the most efficient approach so that you can settle these matters as quickly as possible.

Streamlining The Informal And Formal Probate Process

State guidelines determine which estates must follow the formal or informal probate process. If the probate registrar accepts your application for informal probate, we are qualified to serve as your personal representative and will file all necessary paperwork to settle the estate without court supervision.

If your application for informal probate is denied, you can rely on our lawyer to handle all matters related to the formal probate process. Attorney Peterson has over four decades of probate experience. He understands the intricate aspects of this process and is licensed to represent clients in court hearings.
