Dealing with Death
When a loved one passes away, it is comforting to know that your family is in the hands of a trusted advisor. Whether you need help with a Trust Administration or a Probate, Lichterman Law will provide the care and legal guidance your family needs to get through this difficult time.
After the death of a loved one, it is hard to know where to start. Emotions are running high and it is difficult to think clearly; and every family faces its own unique challenges. More than ever, you need a lawyer that you are not only comfortable with, but one who will come alongside you with compassion and sensitivity.
Legally, there are many things that must be done. We hold a preliminary meeting to gather all of the pertinent information and explain the process ahead. Through our conversation we come to understand your family dynamics, your needs, and desires. Based on what we learn in these conversations, we outline our recommendations, including all fees, deadlines, and responsibilities. We work with the family and the other advisors to transfer assets as quickly as possible, resolve outstanding issues, and ensure that all legal requirements are satisfied within the legal deadlines. You can rely on a calm and experienced advisor who will ease the stress and confusion and navigate all of the legal requirements with you.
We also realize that grieving families are not at their best. The heightened emotions and stress during this time often threatens to pull them apart. Recognizing this, we work to help keep families together when they need each other the most.
