Hourly Transactional Services
Do you think estate planning is too expensive, or too complicated, or just doesn’t apply to you? If you don’t have a will, you have no say in what happens to your savings, your possessions, anything, when you die. That is why everyone needs a will – and the necessary supporting documents that help you control your life.
At the Law Offices of Brent Williams-Ruth, our practice focuses on giving you peace of mind and control by working with you to develop estate plans in line with your budget, and help you manage estates after the loss of a loved one.
With our hourly services you can specify which documents you are looking for and customize your experience.

Probate & Estate Administration
The legal process involved after a loved one dies depends on what estate planning was in place. Generally, probate will be required when someone dies without a Will (“intestate”) or if someone dies with only a Will (“testate”). Probate is the court-governed legal process by which a person’s assets are collected, debts, taxes, and other administrative costs are handled, and assets distributed. Like any court process, this can be complicated. At the Law Offices of Brent Williams-Ruth, we strive to work with clients to ensure that the probate process is handled in a timely, efficient, and cost effective manner. Depending on the needs of the clients, we can handle all actions or work with the Executor/Personal Representative to empower them to save costs by guiding them to handle some of the administrative tasks.
