Springfield Probate and Estate Attorneys Serving Southwest Missouri
At Neale & Newman, L.L.P., we handle probate administration as a natural continuation of our estate planning services. We assist in the administration of wills and trusts. We are an efficient, cost-effective firm, and we treat our clients with the respect and dignity they deserve during periods of mourning.
Few trustees and executors have enough familiarity with trust and probate procedures to successfully administer a trust or an estate. In addition to guiding them through the administration process, we also advise them on the means by which the trust or estate can be protected from creditors, required court filings, estate and income tax issues, and the other issues which arise as a result of the death of an individual.
On occasion a trust or an estate, or possibly the trustee or executor himself, might be involved in claims which result in litigation. In that event, our litigation department is equipped and qualified to handle even the most complex claims. Most trust and estate matters we handle involve clients who we have worked with in estate planning for years or even decades. The trust and estate administration go smoothly because, as is often the case, we have prepared their families in advance.
