LH

Recently, the need arose to probate a family member's estate and I had no idea what to do and wanted an attorney that was nearby.

My daughter suggested Thomas Kanak because they were very pleased with the help he had given their family in the past.

What a delight it was to work with Mr. Kanak and his assistant, Kim! They relieved my concerns and made the process uncomplicated and easy to understand.

We were even able to "appear" before the judge via computer, so there was no need to go to the courthouse.

If you're in need of friendly, down-to-earth, no-pressure legal counsel, I highly recommend Thomas Kanak's firm.

PROBATE

The legal process of admitting a decedent’s Will to a court of law so that an Executor can be appointed to distribute the decedent’s assets as directed in the Will. The Executor is responsible of making sure the decedent’s wishes are honored as stated in the will. This needs to be done within 4 years of the decedent’s death.

There are other ways of probate if there is not a valid will. For example, Determination of Heirship can be done along with an Independent Administration or Small Estate Affidavit.

Mr. Kanak will inform you of the right path, so you don’t have to worry.

WILLS / ANCILLARY DOCUMENTS

It is always best for everyone to have a Last Will and Testament for themselves. A will directs your Executor to distribute your assets and transfers your real property according to your wishes. Perhaps you may find yourself needing a Will with a Trust depending on your situation and we can help with that. Besides wills, we can prepare you several other legal documents for your benefit such as:

A Medical Power of Attorney for you or a loved one to make medical decisions for that person if that person is medically unable to speak their wishes.

General Power of Attorney appoints someone to make non- medical decisions for you.

Directive to Physicians lets your doctor know if you want to be allowed to pass on being made as comfortable as you can or if you want to prolong your life by using life support.

REAL PROPERTY

You have some property that you want to sell, we can help you. There are a number of deeds depending on your situation. Whether you are selling out right or if someone is paying over time, we can take care of that for you. Deeds can be prepared and filed in any county.

CRIMINAL LAW

Getting a traffic ticket is never a good thing unless it is a warning. DWI and DUI are no fun either. Kanak Law Firm may be able to help you.

CIVIL LAW
