Estate Planning And Probate

Make A Plan For Your Family’s Future

It’s never too early to make an estate plan. Whether you are young or old, life is unpredictable, and it’s always possible that an unexpected accident or health crisis could deprive you of the ability to make important decisions, either temporarily or permanently. By proactively making a legally sound estate plan, you can rest easy knowing that you have done the right thing for your family by creating a clear guide addressing important issues such as health directives and how to divide your property among heirs. This advance planning can save your loved ones a lot of confusion and pain in the future by making your wishes clear and unambiguous with precise, legal language.

At Orlando R. Rodriguez, Attorney At Law, we will help you craft a thorough plan that meets your unique needs. We understand that it can be stressful to contemplate the future after you are gone, which is why we approach every conversation with empathy and help you identify the priorities that matter to you and your loved ones.

We offer comprehensive estate planning guidance, including services such as:

  • Will drafting, execution and review

Understanding The Probate Process

If you have recently lost a loved one, you may find yourself navigating the probate court system even as you are grieving your loss. Even when the decedent has prepared a will or other estate planning instruments, in some cases there will be ambiguities and legal disputes that can only be resolved in probate.

We will help you navigate this process efficiently and effectively to ensure that your loved one’s assets are passed on to the appropriate parties.
