Our Arlington Heights Probate Attorney Acts as a Trusted Ally on Your Side

Probate involves the process of settling the estate of someone who is recently deceased.

  • Filing the deceased person’s will with the court;
  • Providing a complete inventory of all property and assets;
  • Providing public notice of their death;
  • Collecting any outstanding money owed and settling all debts;
  • Distributing property and assets among beneficiaries;
  • Filing a final tax return and closing the estate.
