Probate Administration



Estate Planning attorney Mike Watkins represents people in all aspects of estate planning. However, in cases when a will does not exist an estate must be handled in Probate court. Our skilled attorneys can help you understand the Probate process and make sure you are represented properly.

If you have been named to settle the estate of a family member or friend, we can represent you in fulfilling those duties in a timely, thorough and cost-effective manner. We also represent any party who has a stake in probate litigation. We can assist personal representatives who do not live in Missouri, or out-of-state heirs who need local representation in probate litigation.
