Going to court, even for a probate matter, can seem scary to many people.
We want to make the process less daunting.
Every estate is different, and we have handled all different types. Some decedents had wills, some had trusts that they did not fund, some had no will or competing wills. Some estates have contested matters that have to be taken up in mediation or eventually circuit court.
Hiring an experienced probate attorney can be most beneficial in these situations.
Attorney Melissa Rodden Mays has personally represented hundreds of clients in probate court throughout Kentucky and Indiana over her career. We are competent in the laws and required filings as well as the nuances that come with each family scenario and personalities.
If your loved one has passed away, please call us at 502-805-1133 to set up a consultation.
We will take the time to compassionately and thoughtfully assist you in this distressing time.
Did You Know?
Kentucky is one of the very few states that still require jury trials to determine if a person is no longer capable to take care of his or her financial and personal affairs. If your loved one never executed a valid Power of Attorney this might be the situation you are in.
