Lorain Probate Lawyers

After a family member passes away, the process of dealing with the financial and legal affairs of the estate is known as probate. With a few exceptions, almost every estate in Ohio goes through the probate process in part or in full. Navigating probate can feel overwhelming after the loss of a loved one, which is why the Lorain probate lawyers at Kryszak & Associates are here to help. To learn more about the wide array of probate legal services available to our clients in the Lorain area, call or contact our office today.

Services Our Probate Attorneys Provide

During the Ohio probate process, the executor of the estate is tasked with identifying all assets belonging to the state, providing notice to creditors for any outstanding debts, filing paperwork, valuing items of value, and more. An experienced probate attorney can take on all legal and administrative tasks of the process so that you can properly mourn your lost loved one. Some of the most common services the probate attorneys at Kryszak & Associates provide include the following:

  • Identify and secure all estate assets
  • Secure the estate will, trusts, and other important paperwork
  • Obtain reasonable appraisals of all items of value in the estate

Successful Probate Litigation Experience

In some cases, a family member, heir, beneficiary, or other party associated with the estate will contest the will or file another legal grievance against the estate. When this occurs, you need a probate attorney with litigation experience representing the best interests of the estate. Our lawyers have the knowledge and experience necessary to handle all types of probate litigation that may be filed in your case.

The most common cause of probate litigation is a will contest. Common reasons for contesting the will include the use of undue influence, lack of mental capacity, fraud, duress, or forgery in the estate documents. A family member may try to have a prior version of the will reinstated or have the estate plan thrown out altogether. Creditors may also file actions to collect debts or to contest where they are in line for reimbursement. Whatever the litigation issue, our probate lawyers are prepared to handle the case.
