Probate

Probate is a court-supervised process for distributing the individually owned assets of a deceased person. Assets are distributed to beneficiaries in accordance to the instructions written in the person's will.  Our law firm offers legal services to help the Personal Representative comply with Montana's probate requirements. Most often the Personal Representative is a family member named in the recently deceased person's will.  Usually, these family members have little to no knowledge of Montana's probate requirements.  A Personal Representative is responsible for seeing that the assets of the estate are distributed properly and in a timely manner.  For more than 30 years we have helped Personal Representatives in Montana and the Gallatin Valley fulfill their duties.  Our Firm will help the personal representative at every step in the process.
