Probate is the legal process by which a person’s assets are distributed to his or her heirs and beneficiaries upon death. While a probate matter may or may not have to be overseen by a court, there doesn’tneed to be any formal lawsuit if the parties can agree on a course of action. Mr. Keele can assist and advise parties on how to resolve these issues, and his experience in mediation, along with his practical and common-sense approach to solving problems, can often avoid a protracted family war where no one wins. There are times, however, when controversy between heirs cannot be avoided and the parties will have to litigate the issues before the court. Disputes also occur when a trustee acts, fails to act, or makes improper distributions from a trust. In these circumstances, as either a personal representative of the decedent’s estate, a trustee of a trust, or a beneficiary of either who feels that s/he did not receive all that was due, Mr. Keele can advise and assist in all of the twists and turns of these contests—contests where emotions can run high. Care and finesse is needed to work through these often thorny issues while triggering the least amount of family turmoil as possible. Mr. Keele has the experience, as well as the diplomacy skills and discretion, to resolve the dispute with the best possible outcome for not only you but for all involved. With Kamron’s help, the parties can focus on the genuine issues and address them head-on so that agreement can be expedited, and all involved can put the matter behind them as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible.
