Trusted, experienced attorneys also serving Woodbury, MN.

The probate process in Minnesota is complex and can be intimidating to navigate without the guidance of an attorney familiar with the applicable probate court rules and procedures.  The process is often further complicated by the feelings and emotions that accompany the loss of a loved one.  We are conscious of these challenges and want to help you through these difficult times.  Our family business has provided legal assistance and counseling for hundreds of probate and estate clients.  Each relationship is unique and treated with respect and sensitivity.  You can feel confident that we will make every effort to provide the same for you.

We estimate that more than 90 percent of our clientele is the result of repeat clients or referrals from clients.  We truly appreciate these referrals and will make every effort to ensure these positive referrals continue with you

We take pride in our personalized and one-on-one approach.  Initially, you will meet (or speak by phone) with one of our probate and estate attorneys to assess your situation and define your specific needs and goals.  From there, we will work together to customize a plan designed to help you accomplish your goals and answer any questions you have about the probate process.  Your confidence in us is extremely important.  If you have any questions or concerns during representation, simply call our office and the attorney you initially met or spoke with will be happy to address them.  If this attorney is unavailable, we will offer the option to speak with another available attorney in our office.  We do not operate our business in a manner where you will meet initially with a probate and estate lawyer and subsequently deal only with office assistants for the remainder of the matter. 

We realize most of our estate clients have never been a personal representative of an estate.  We'll help you understand the entire process from appointment as the personal representative (sometimes referred to as the executor or executrix of the estate) to settling and closing the estate.  We'll also assist you in fulfilling your duties and obligations as the personal representative for the estate.  In many instances, certain estates do not require probate and can be handled with a single document along with a certified copy of the death certificate.  We will help you identify if the estate falls within this category, which will save you (and the estate) time and unnecessary expense.

At Taurinskas Law Firm, you'll find experienced attorneys to assist you with any probate or trust administration issues or questions you may have in Minnesota. Our law office offers a free initial consultation for probate or estate administration matters.
