Andrea has been my attorney for several years and has capably helped me with many legal issues. She is one of the most compassionate people I've had the pleasure of doing business with. She always makes time to explain things in ways that are easy to understand. In addition, she returns calls promptly, and is never too busy to answer any questions that you may have. I have confidently referred her to my children, and she is now their attorney…
Andrea did my will and all of my Advance Directives for my Medical needs. We even addressed my dogs needs as I am single and was concerned about their well being. Doing a will is difficult, but Ms. Kryszak is kind, patient and caring and I never felt rushed. Her staff is also just as concerned about your well being. I highly recommend Andrea Kryszak and her staff. Top Notch Service in every aspect.

Andrea conducted a timely complete review of our estate and trust condition. She recommended the changes and additions we needed to make to get everything up to date. This was all done in a very timely matter... She performed everything correct and on-time for our return to her office for all of the final signing and recording of necessary documents.
I met with Andrea several times for both myself and my mother's legal needs. I found Andrea to be very professional yet personal which made for a pleasant experience. Her understanding and guidance was extremely helpful in finalizing our needs. I would highly recommend her!
Ms. Kryszak took the time to meet with me, understand the goals I was trying to achieve, and then provided a few options for attaining those goals. Subsequently, she delivered everything she said she was going to deliver, when she said she would deliver it (if not sooner). She was a pleasure to work with and kept me in the loop throughout the entire process, I would have no problem at all recommending her to anyone needing legal assistance.
Andrea was excellent. She provided me with all my needs and I am totally satisfied. I highly recommend her.
Andrea is very positive and compassionate. She has the knowledge and experience to be able to work through the various issues and problems that you may encounter while closing your estate. She treats you as one of the family. Highly recommend her.
I have used Andrea's services both personally for myself, friends, & family, & also professionally. She is knowledgeable, professional, & courteous. I find her rates to be competitive and she performed everything correctly. If you want an Estate Attorney that puts her personal stamp on her work & goes the extra mile...Andrea is the right person to reach out to.
Andrea was kind and compassionate while working with me during a most difficult time in my life. She helped me understand specific legal language and gave me sound financial advise. Andrea assisted with completing my husband's and my will soon before my husband passed away. She was respectful of his illness and the urgency at which the will needed to be completed.
Probate is the process one must go through when an individual passes away with assets that are titled in their name alone. In order to transfer those assets to their heirs, pursuant to the terms of their Last Will and Testament, documentation must be submitted to probate court for the executor to have authority to transfer those assets.
Even though the Will names you as executor, you still need authority from the local probate court judge, in order to fulfill your duties as executor.
No, if you are a joint owner on an account with another individual, those proceeds belong to you. They are considered to be a non-probate asset and the proceeds do not pass under the decedent’s Will to the beneficiaries named in the Will.
If you believe you might need professional legal help for a probate case, you should…
