THE BEGINNING STEPS

It is a good idea to start the probate process as quickly as possible after the death of the decedent. Once the funeral, burial arrangements and other family matters are completed, you can start the probate process. The process begins by hiring the Law Offices Of Robert L. Cohen, Inc. which routinely handles probate matters and is intimately aware of the probate process and its many pitfalls. Mr. Cohen meets with all clients personally and does not use paralegals to prepare or complete any of the work. Rather all the work is completed by Mr. Cohen so that it is done right the first time. You only talk with the attorney. The result is that all the papers are properly filed and the probate procedure is completed at the earliest possible conclusion.

There is no additional fee for this personal service Mr. Cohen provides each and every client. In fact, Mr. Cohen is one of the few lawyers that believes in his clients so much so that he requires no upfront fees to pay for the filings and other incidental fees incurred in the case. Mr. Cohen understands that many times the death is unexpected and the cost of the funeral and related expenses can really cause financial difficulty for the heirs/relatives. For this reason, Mr. Cohen advances the fees for all the costs such that there are no upfront or out of pocket fees to the client. Many courts require the client to post a surety bond which guarantees the safety of the estate assets. The Law Offices Of Robert L. Cohen, Inc. will also handle the entire procedure for attaining the issuance of a surety bond which is generally required by the court before the probate process can begin. The Law Offices Of Robert L. Cohen, Inc. will also advance the fees for the bond as well in order to promptly begin the probate procedure.

DOCUMENT INTENSIVE PROCESS

Almost the entire probate procedure is conducted via written documents which are approved at court hearings. There is generally very little live testimony required except in unusual situations such as a will contest. For the most part, the Law Offices Of Robert L. Cohen, Inc. will handle all the hearings without the need for the client to be present. Generally, the client is not required to attend any probate hearings unless there is an unusual wrinkle in the case. Of course, Mr. Cohen will attend all hearings and will also prepare you for any hearing that the client's attendance is required.
