For those of you that only have a will, Hegwood Law Group will help your executor probate your estate. We have lawyers experienced to handle these matters and the caring to help the families that have suffered a loss.

Additionally, some people die without a will, but have property that needs to be given to their heirs. There are special proceedings for this occurrence and Hegwood Law Group has the ability to handle the complexities of this type of proceedings. Also, families with loved ones that do not have a medical power of attorney and a statutory power of attorney and become incapacitated may need guardianships in order to take care of the medical and financial decisions of those loved ones. We can help.

For those families that have trusts, Hegwood Law Group has the ability to administer the trust after the death of a Grantor. The ability to administer trusts correctly enables the beneficiaries to receive their trust assets without problems and performed correctly.
