The Probate Process Made Simple

Probate, or estate administration, is the legal process of finalizing an estate after an individual has died. This process varies greatly depending on a number of factors, including the size of the estate, whether the deceased had a will and outstanding creditor claims.

At LeVine, Ehrman & Horberg Ltd., we can guide you through the probate process and will preside over any disputes, such as wills contests, that arise among family members or other interested parties along the way.

Helping To Protect Beneficiary Rights

Our attorneys have aided Illinois families with probate and administering estates for decades. Whether you are looking for legal guidance to make the process move smoothly and to keep probate costs low, or are contesting a will on behalf of a beneficiary or heir, we can help.

Our probate litigation attorneys handle:

  • Asset valuation
  • Administering wills
  • Paying debts and obligations of an estate
  • Will contests
  • Beneficiary claims
  • Third-party claims against estates
