Mason Probate Lawyer

Efficient and Cost-Effective Probate Services

Many people think that probate is expensive and takes forever to complete. Most probate matters, however, can be completed in a timely and cost-effective manner. Depending on the type of assets in an estate, and how they are titled, probate may not be necessary at all.

At Noud & Noud, we provide probate services designed to complete the probate process efficiently and distribute assets to the beneficiaries or heirs of the estate as quickly as possible. We will work diligently to make the probate process easy, trouble free and economical.

Contact Noud & Noud for a consultation with one of our experienced Mason probate attorneys.

Comprehensive Probate Services

A Mason probate attorney at our firm can review your situation and provide you with the guidance you need. If the estate’s assets are such that it does not require probate, we will tell you so. If the estate does require probate, our firm can handle all aspects of the process. For a reasonable fee, we can:

  • File the necessary papers to establish the powers of the personal representative (executor)
  • Notify the estate’s beneficiaries, devisees and creditors
  • Assist in making an inventory of the estate’s assets
  • Assist in distributing the estate’s assets
  • Make and distribute a final accounting

Is Probate Really Necessary?

For many estates, the answer is no. If the estate’s assets are jointly titled or if they are contractual in nature (such as life insurance or retirement accounts), they can be transferred without probate. Our firm can review your situation to determine the most efficient way to effectively distribute the assets of an estate. Call Noud & Noud at 517-676-6010 to discuss your needs with an experienced Mason and East Lansing estate planning attorney.
