The death of a loved one is an emotional challenge

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.

With you every step of the way

Many questions arise as to how the decedent’s affairs will be handled and what the exact role of the surviving family may be. We understand the pressures that come with taking care of an estate. 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.

 

“Knowing nothing about the legal side of elder care I reached out to them and everything was handled quickly and professionally. Joe and Dawn took time to meet with me in person to go over every question and option. During the time of this pandemic they resumed all communications through email, phone and zoom calls to keep things moving throughout the entire process. They have made this transition easier for me now as well as knowing they will be there when I need them in the future. THANK YOU BOTH!”
