Probate is a dreaded word, but with us on your team, you don’t need to worry.  We have extensive experience dealing with the probate courts in Missouri.

At Markell Estate Planning & Elder Law, we will guide you through the often tedious and complex probate process and grant you peace of mind that the matter is being handled correctly and efficiently.

Our office will be with you every step of the way, from the initial filing of the petition, to appointment of a personal representative, to locating estate property, through final distribution to heirs, and providing the court with final accounts.


“My experience with Markell Estate Planning & Elder Law was beyond my expectations. I spoke with Dawn on the phone and she took a genuine interest in my needs and put me at ease immediately. Next, I met with Joe Markell and he was very professional and friendly. I signed my document which was electronically filed with the county and emailed to me the same day! If you have a need for Estate Planning & Elder Law, please call Markell. You'll be glad you did!”
