When a loved one passes on, the administration of his or her estate can be confusing and time-consuming. This may be especially true if there was no will left behind. I am Collinsville estate administration attorney John Bitzer and I have been helping the people of southwestern Illinois with the administration of estates for more than 30 years. If you have had a loved one pass away and need direction on what to do with the estate, I can help.
As a Belleville wills and trusts attorney, I have the skill and knowledge to help guide you through all of the issues that may come up when it is time to administer an estate or a trust, including:
• Contested and uncontested probate of a will
• Administration when a loved one dies intestate, or without a will
• Administration of all types of trusts
• Following through on a business succession plan
I will work closely with the executor of an estate or the administrator of a trust to help identify all of the assets of the deceased. I will also remain in continual contact with all of the heirs and trustees to let them know where the process is at and what steps need to be taken. From the Bitzer Law Firm, I will also handle any questions or concerns that creditors may have, and can help mediate disputes among any of the heirs. You can rely on my experience and knowledge to help see you through a potentially difficult time.
I am here to help family members with the disposition of a loved one's estate. Call me today for a free consultation and to discuss your situation.
