Losing a loved one is never easy, but it can be particularly difficult to grieve and move forward when you are responsible for administering or probating the estate. At Miller, Kistler & Campbell, we represent clients at every stage of life — including those who are struggling through the probate process after losing a close friend or relative.
Our lawyers have decades of experience guiding clients through the entire probate process, including:

Helping You See Probate Clearly
Many people have heard from popular financial advisers, media stories or other sources that probate should be avoided at all costs. However, probate in Pennsylvania is often fairly simple and straightforward. Our attorneys’ depth of experience and knowledge of probate court allow us to recommend a strategy that supports your goals without unnecessary expense.
Unfortunately, the emotional stresses of losing a loved one and dividing his or her assets commonly lead to disputes between family members, executors or other interested parties. When disagreements threaten to derail probate proceedings, our attorneys provide compassionate and pragmatic counsel to help you protect your interests and the wishes of your lost loved one.
