Minneapolis Probate Lawyer

Most people have heard the term "probate" in connection with what happens when a person dies. In reality, not all estates must go through probate, but surviving family members almost always need some level of legal counsel to ensure the decedent's assets are distributed and transferred according to the law, debts are paid, and other requirements are met.
