Estate Planning And Probate For East Grand Forks Area Clients

Neil Law Firm, P.C., is an East Grand Forks firm helping clients throughout the community with their estate planning needs. We are focused on giving personal attention to our clients and creating solutions tailored to their needs.

We advise clients of all backgrounds, including single parents, families with children, individuals, couples and the elderly. No two clients are alike, nor do they have the same goals for their estate plan. At the Neil Law Firm, P.C., we personally attend to clients and help guide them through the estate planning process to meet their goals.

Contact our firm to arrange a consultation and learn about the variety of estate planning options we offer, including:

  • Living wills: The purpose of a living will is to determine what medical procedures doctors may use on you and to appoint someone to make health care decisions if you are unable to. Our wills and trust attorneys can help clients obtain peace of mind by preparing a living will so their wishes will be honored.
  • Wills: By preparing a will, clients can set forth how they want their assets handled when they die. Clients can also potentially avoid the lengthy probate process and provide for the care of their children. At the Neil Law Firm, P.C., we are experienced in helping clients find the best options for them.
  • Trusts: Creating a trust is another way to make provisions for where your assets go when you are gone. Unlike wills, a trust is not subject to probate. Assets are transferred to a trust that is managed during a person's lifetime and a trustee manages it when the person dies. We help clients create trusts to manage their assets and avoid probate.
  • Power of attorney: We help clients nominate someone to have legal authority to handle their affairs if they are unable. By having us prepare a power of attorney document, clients can protect their interests in the event of the unexpected.

Guidance In Probate And In Probate Avoidance

Probate is a court process that occurs when people have not made plans for how to handle their affairs when they die or if they become unable to make those decisions. Probate can be costly and lengthy. Our lawyers can help clients make choices now and put plans in place to eliminate the need for probate later.

If you are struggling with the probate process and need help, we can represent you.

We are experienced litigators who have decades of experience in courtroom proceedings and complex dispute resolution. Still, we do not believe every matter must end up in court. As qualified mediators, we can help resolve your will contest, beneficiary dispute, property dispute, business succession dispute and more without the expense of court.
