Probate Overview

Probate administration describes the process in which the assets from the deceased individual’s estate are distributed. A loved one may have died without leaving a will or the will may not account for all the assets in the estate or the terms of the will. The terms of the will may even be the result of undue influence over the individual when he or she was making the will. This can make things more difficult for fiduciaries, beneficiaries, heirs and others involved in the administration of the estate.

At Chayet & Danzo, LLC, we understand Colorado probate law and are able to assist with a full range of probate matters. Please call 303-872-5980 to speak with an experienced probate attorney today. We offer a free initial consultation.

Guiding You Through The Probate Process
