Little Rock Probate Lawyer

Settling Your Loved One's Estate

Probate is the process of settling the estate of a person who has passed away. This process involves, among other things, the validation of the will (if one is available), the distribution of the estate's assets and the settlement of the estate's debts.

There are two types of estates that go through probate: testate, where the person has left a valid will; and intestate, where the person has died without a will or no will could be found. In cases where there is a will, property will be divided according to the contents of the will. If there is no will, property will be divided according to Arkansas statute.

Strong Representation for Executors and Beneficiaries

The person who represents the estate during probate, commonly referred to as an executor or personal representative, is often a friend or family member of the deceased person who has never been through the probate process before. For these people, the legal issues and responsibilities can quickly become overwhelming. In many cases, the assistance of a reliable Little Rock probate attorney can help to ensure that the process goes smoothly.

At The Wright Law Firm, I represent executors in all aspects of the probate process, working to ensure that all responsibilities are performed in accordance with the law and providing skillful representation in the event that legal disputes arise. I also represent beneficiaries who have issues regarding how the executor is fulfilling his or her responsibilities, the validity of the will and other matters.
