Estate Planning & Probate

Estate Planning

An unfortunate part of life is death. We all wish we could live forever, but we cannot. For most people it is important their family and loved ones are protected if they pass away. Not having proper estate planning can lead to your assets not being distributed according to your wishes and to excessive estate tax liability.  Our attorneys have years of experience in drafting Simple Wills to complex Trusts. 


Probate / Estate Administration

Upon the death of a loved attention needs to be paid to the distribution of assets, estate tax liabilities, sale of assets and the distribution of assets. In some cases the distribution of their property can often lead to heated disagreements between family members. Dealing with probate matters is a heart-wrenching experience, but is a required part of the process that comes when dealing with the passing away of a family member.


For 45 years, Reitz, Paul & Shorr has been assisting clients with their estate planning needs and helping them through the probate process when a loved one passes.
