Estate Planning

An estate plan includes legal documents that outline the disposition of personal property and assets upon a person’s death. A proper estate plan ensures that a person’s wishes are carried out, and that he or she is able to pass the greatest amount of assets to their beneficiaries while incurring the least amount of taxes and administrative costs.

If a person dies without having taken appropriate actions, their assets will pass according to state statutes, rather than their own wishes.

We have guided hundreds of clients through the process of properly preparing and executing sound estate plans that are tailored to their specific needs.

Probate

Probate is the process through which the court oversees the transfer of the assets in your estate to your beneficiaries.


With a few limited exceptions, all wills need to be admitted to probate. Probate is also necessary when a person dies without a will or other estate plan.

The probate process is long and arduous, and you shouldn’t do it alone. At Ritter Elder Law & Estate Planning, we handle probates of all varieties—from estates with few assets to estates of well over $1 million. We will guide you every step of the way and ensure no stone is left unturned so that your loved one’s estate is handled efficiently and with compassion.
