Myers Harbor Law, PLLC is a law firm serving clients in Gig Harbor and the surrounding areas. Our practice focuses on the areas of estate planning and estate administration.
Estate planning can refer to anything from the very simple to the very complex and includes drafting legal documents such as the Last Will and Testament, Powers of Attorney, Health Care Directives, and/or Trusts.
It is a common misunderstanding that estate planning is not needed because a person believes their estate is too small or too simple. We aim to tailor an estate plan to the individual needs of the client to ensure that any estate plan, whether it be simple or complex, meets the needs of the client.
Estate Administration and Probate
Administering an estate is the part of the process that happens when a person passes away. Each estate administration may look different depending on what sort of estate planning has been done (or not done) by the deceased person. Estate administration is often done by a surviving family member or friends named in the deceased person’s Last Will and Testament or Trust. If no estate planning has been done, then administration of an estate may be governed by the intestacy laws of the state.
Whichever rules or procedures are necessary to property administer an estate, we can help guide you through the process to ensure that it is done properly and that you have piece of mind when it is completed.
