Probate

Ever an advocate of in-advance, proper legal planning, Wokwicz Law Offices, LLC helps most clients circumnavigate probate. However, we can also help those who have not previously benefited from our estate planning services.  We are here to help guide you through the probate process, including the appointment as personal representative, inventory of assets for probate and tax basis purposes, financial and final accountings, 1040 and 1041 tax returns, and distributions to beneficiaries and charities.

We can help you through the probate process, regardless of whether the deceased person had a will.  We will ascertain whether informal or formal estate administration is the best course of action. Our skilled lawyers have years of experience in matters of a Will contest or dispute, and we welcome the opportunity to help you litigate or resolve the matter.

In practice since 1958, we have a great deal of experience in the Kenosha, Racine, Walworth, and Milwaukee probate courts.   We appreciate the unique differences between the counties and can efficiently guide you through the probate process.

We also aid our clients in administering probate estates and trusts, ensuring that proper accountings, 1041 tax returns, deeds and distributions are made in accordance with the terms of the applicable Wisconsin probate or trust laws.

Our services include identifying, collecting and managing assets, spouse’s rights and beneficiary rights under Wisconsin law, sale of assets and real estate, payment of debts, claims, taxes and probate administration expenses, distributions to beneficiaries consistent with Wisconsin law, distribution of assets to those named in the Will or Trust or if there is no will or trust to the heirs at law according to Wisconsin law and the applicable documents.
