Dedicated Kentucky Probate Attorney Helps Enforce Final Wishes
Accomplished Georgetown law firm handles will execution and disputes
Even when a will’s instructions are clear, distributing the property of a deceased loved one can be a complicated process. At Larmour Law Offices, PSC in Georgetown, I advise clients throughout central Kentucky on a complete range of probate matters. My firm is committed to making the process as prompt and smooth as possible. For more than 14 years, I have provided compassionate guidance to families involved in probate, enabling them to resolve the legal details of a loved one’s estate and move forward. When conflicts exist as to the actual wishes of the decedent, I protect the rights of executors and beneficiaries in Kentucky courts. Whether you require assistance with a large, complex estate or one that is relatively small and simple, I deliver meticulous representation to protect your legal rights and overall well-being.
Skilled lawyer guides clients through the probate process
Once someone dies, my firm can help the appointed executor file the will and move through each stage of the probate process, including:
- Locating assets and creating an inventory — Often, a decedent owns assets that might be difficult to find. I can help locate and itemize this property so these items can be transferred into the estate.
- Managing tax and financial obligations — Tax bills and other debts must be settled even after someone passes away. My firm handles these responsibilities so that assets are not threatened due to nonpayment.
- Transferring property to beneficiaries — Once each item is brought into the estate and all expenses are paid, I facilitate disbursement of the property to the heirs in a prompt, accurate manner.
- Administration when no will exists — If someone dies without a will, their estate is divided under Kentucky’s intestacy laws, according to the prioritization set forth by statute. If you are appointed an administrator for an intestate estate, I can advise you on distributing the assets legally and efficiently.
I never forget that probate occurs at an extremely difficult time for families; that’s why I am committed to doing everything in my power to reduce the stress and cost associated with estate resolution.
Strong advocacy for conflicts that arise while an estate is administered
If you are appointed the executor of an estate, you could find yourself in the middle of contentious, complicated litigation. My firm provides knowledgeable advice and works tirelessly to resolve conflicts that threaten to consume the entire value of an estate. In court and negotiations, I will use each appropriate tool under Kentucky law to see that the decedent’s instructions are enforced. I also bring the same dedication to representing beneficiaries who believe that an estate is being administered improperly.
Assisting clients who seek to avoid probate
Individuals and families who are planning their estate and wish to avoid the potentially lengthy probate process do have options. I can explain how trusts and other legal devices can transfer assets while bypassing probate. I will advise on the advantages and disadvantages of each option, as well as the possible tax consequences.
