Wills And Trusts

Don’t leave your family’s future to chance. Take the trouble out of the process, and get a will set up today. If you don’t, state law steps in and directs how your estate is to be distributed.

Real Estate Transfer

Contemplating transferring real estate? Let us help you. We walk you through the process of how to sell, gift, auction, or transfer real estate. There are several options, and consideration for these is critical when formulating a comprehensive estate plan.

Ancillary Probates

Ancillary probates are required when assets are owned outside of the deceased’s home state. If your loved one owned mineral rights or oil interests in North Dakota, a probate is required in North Dakota to transfer those interests. Family members often do not discover this until the oil company stops making royalty payments. We handle ancillary probates for out-of-state clients, as well as represent local probate law clients through this process.

Power Of Attorney/Health Care Directives

What happens if I’m unable to make financial or health care decisions for myself? Preparing power of attorney or health care directives takes away the worry of not having someone who is not authorized to make decisions on your behalf should you not be able to do so.

Estate Administration/Probate

A loved one died; what do I need to do? After the loss of a loved one, those left behind must manage the affairs of the deceased’s estate. Our experienced attorneys can guide you through this delicate process and make it understandable so you know what is required for cost-effective administration.

Estate Disputes

Our goal is to efficiently walk families through a probate, but sometimes disputes or disagreements come up between family members. Whether it be a will contest or a trust administration dispute, we can assist you and make sure your interests are protected.
