We are Sorry that you are here!
Yes, you read that correctly. If you are reading this chances are that a loved one or friend has recently died, and you then learned that a Probate Administration will be needed to handle the affairs.
We are truly sorry for your loss. We are here to help you through the next few months.
We are a law firm located in Kearney, Missouri, and have been helping our clients through Probate for over 31 years. Our job is to help make the process as efficient and painless as possible. That is not to say that it won't be inconvenient from time to time. It may well be. However, we believe that by thoroughly laying out the process and explaining it to you we can keep your frustration to a minimum.
We are located in Kearney, Missouri - just north of Kansas City. We routinely handle probate matters in Clay County, Jackson County, Clinton County, Platte County, and Ray County. However, we have effectively and efficiently handled estates in all parts of Missouri -- Kansas City to St. Louis, Kirksville to Springfield, Maryville to Cape Girardeau.
You may well be worried about the expense as well. That's natural. We'll do our best to make sure you understand the costs before you start, and make the process as smooth as possible.
