Law Offices of Jonathan M Aven offers comprehensive planning for one of the most difficult situations we ever face: preparing for your death or facing the death of a loved one. We will help you determine what will happen to your property and smooth the process of transferring your assets to your survivors.

Estate

Planning for an estate transfer is daunting for many people, but no matter how small your assets may be, crafting a well-conceived plan is essential to ensure that your loved ones are cared for and your property is distributed the way you want it to be. Law Offices of Jonathan M Aven will put together a package of documents that reflects your needs and circumstances.

We will help you draft a will, name a guardian for your minor children, create a living trust, and set up a durable power of attorney so that your finances can be taken care of no matter what the circumstances in the future.

Probate

When you find yourself with a loved one who has just died, that person’s estate must be administered in probate court. The court legally recognizes the death and appoints an administrator, usually the executor of the will. If there is no will someone will be appointed by the court.

The administrator will oversee the property and have the right to sign documents, sell property, and distribute assets on behalf of the estate. This process can be further complicated if the deceased left no will, or had complicated finances. If you are an heir, the Law Offices of Jonathan M Aven will help represent your interests at this difficult time.
