Compassionate Support throughout the Probate Process

What is Probate?

Probate is the court-supervised process of closing out a loved one’s estate after their passing. This process typically includes the following tasks:

  • Determining of the validity of the will

  • Identifying and inventorying the deceased’s property

  • Completing the appraisal of real or personal property

  • Paying the decedent’s debts and taxes

  • Distributing the remaining property in accordance with the will, or in accordance with Nebraska law in the absence of a will.

There’s a Reason for Its Reputation

Working through estate administration can be a stressful, time consuming and costly burden on top of your grief. The minimum amount of time required to complete the probate process is approximately six months, but it normally takes longer. Delays are common. If a person contests the will, if property cannot be sold, or if claimants aren’t notified in a timely manner, the process can drag on. Working with an experienced probate attorney reduces the chances of complications during the probate process.


That is why we offer a full-service approach to probate and trust administration for clients throughout Nebraska. Our approach is designed to minimize headaches, quickly transfer assets, and ensure all legal requirements are satisfied within the appropriate deadlines. All of this is done with care and compassion during a difficult time.
