Probate is the method by which a person’s will is filed with the court and the assets of a deceased person are gathered, his or her creditors paid, and the remainder of the estate distributed to beneficiaries. In the event of a death in your family, we can assist you with probate court in Christian County or surrounding counties in Western Kentucky.

The thought of going to trial or appearing in a courtroom is a stressful proposition for most people. Litigation is often time consuming, expensive, and does not guarantee an outcome that will fully satisfy either party.

Fortunately, an experienced mediator can help you to avoid the emotional and financial pitfalls commonly associated with traditional litigation.
