After a death, there are many legal details to consider. While it is not necessary to get a lawyer, it is strongly recommended. An experienced attorney will make sure all the "t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted”. The time following a death of a loved one is extremely emotional, and even the the most trivial matters may result in disagreements among close family. To ensure peace in the family, it is a good idea to retain a lawyer to help figure things out. 

Before getting in touch with a local attorney there are several important documents you will want to collect. These include:

  • Wills
  • Deeds
  • Bank Statements
  • Insurance Policies
  • Vehicle and Boat titles
  • Tax Documents
