Probate Lawyers in CT

Probate is the process of supervising how assets are transferred at death. In Connecticut, the Probate Court system is separate from the "regular" Superior Court. Our Probate Judges are elected, and serve in local or regional courts. In 2011, we saw a major reorganization of our Probate Court system.

Many people find the probate process in Connecticut (CT) to be complex–even intimidating. We're not experts in the procedures used in other states, but Connecticut has done much to streamline its probate laws. Some of our clients ask us to handle all aspects of the probate process. Others consult with us on specific issues or problems.

It's worth mentioning that the Probate Courts do handle matters other than the estates of those who have died. For example, these courts have the jurisdiction (i.e., the power) to deal with a host of other matters including adoptions, guardianships, and conservatorships.
