Probate Administration

Probate is the process of passing the assets of a deceased person to his or heirs, after the payment of creditors. In addition to the grief that is caused by the loss of a loved one, the personal representative of an estate is required to quickly learn the legal procedures necessary to ensure a smooth estate administration. The attorneys and other professionals at the Soignier Law Firm provide the help and assistance necessary to ensure a successful probate administration.

Amos L. Soignier handles dozens of Colorado probate administrations each year, and has the experience necessary to guide personal representatives through the complex probate process.

The Soignier Law Firm handle estates of all sizes and complexities, from simple estates valued at less than $100,000 all the way up to taxable estates valued in the millions.

If you are named as the personal representative in a will for a deceased Southwestern Colorado resident, please contact us to help start the probate process. If you are an heir and the person named in the will as the personal representative is deceased or is unable or unwilling to fulfill their duties as the personal representative, you may be eligible to serve as the personal representative. If there is no will, Colorado law sets forth an order of priority to determine who can serve as the personal representative. Contact us and we can walk you through the process.

If you have been named the Personal Representative in a will or have question about a Colorado probate estate, please contact the Soignier Law Firm, LLC.
