Facilitating Wealth Transfers To New Generations

Probating an estate is legally complex and emotionally charged. While dealing with the death of a loved one, you face a process involving the transferring of the deceased's assets. Many family members are grieving while others are disputing where money and possessions are going, especially if a will does not exist.

A Commitment To Personalized Representation During A Complex Process

At Essig Law Office, we represent clients responsible for probating estates. When you retain a lawyer at our Washington-based law firm, we will spend the time necessary to get to know you personally. We will tailor strategies based on the specific estate and your goals.

Probate is a complex legal process where property is transferred to heirs and other people selected by a deceased person. Whether an estate is relatively modest or complex in its financial issues, we can provide the counsel you need to accomplish our clients' goals.

From the initial petition filing with the Clerk of Court through the hearing before the judge, you need an attorney at your side, especially if matters involve contested wills. Even if the deceased family member has a will drafted outside Illinois, we can help you while abiding by another state's probate process.
